The year 2020 has brought some changes to how we normally conduct our adult and teen reading programs. For starters, our entire program will be done online through Beanstack, a new tool we’re using to keep everyone engaged while remaining apart. You can register by clicking on the Beanstack logo below!

In addition, all of our speakers and events will be online. See below for a list of 2020 programs. Visit our calendar HERE  to register for an online invitation to each event. For prizes, this year we’re supporting our local businesses by awarding $25 gift certificates to Elkhorn area restaurants to each of our grand prize winners. And as per our long-standing tradition, all participants who read at least one book will receive this year’s themed book bag! See Beanstack for details on how to get your bag.
