Three Ways to Win Big!

Step 1:
Go to the Beanstack Website for access to the Teen Reading Challenge.
-If you've participated in an online reading program with O'Neal Library before then you already have a Beanstack account. Use your username and password to log in. If you don’t remember your information follow the links to reset your password OR get in touch with young adult librarians Matt Layne and Michelle Cheng at teens@oneallibrary.org for help.
-If you’ve never participated in summer reading at the O’Neal Library then create a new account.

Step 2:
Select the Challenges tab or click on the O'Neal Library logo in the upper left corner. 
Find "Teen Summer Reading 2022: World Games" and click on "Register for this Challenge."

Step 3:
Read a book that fits a badge! On the Activity Badge page enter your book’s information (title, author, and number of pages) AND the required response. The Activity Badge icon should change from gray to full color and appear under the “Earned Badges” tab.

Challenge Requirements: Books must be 100+ pages. Read a different book for each challenge. Challenges can be completed in any order. The Reading Challenge begins Sun, May 22 at 12:00AM and ends on Sat, July 23 at 11:59PM.

The grand prize reading winners will be announced at the World Games Finale Party on Wed, July 27 at 5PM!

Email our ONL teen librarians at teens@oneallibrary.org with your artwork before 11:59PM on Thu, June 30. It can be anything: painting, a song, a short story, film, cross-stitch, cake. If you created it, we want to see it!

We'll showcase all your projects in a gallery on the second floor of the O'Neal Library, so the community can appreciate your genius. Encourage your friends, family, to come in and vote for your creation. Plus random patrons and art critics can vote for their favorite art-piece (yours obviously!).

Winners of the Creativity Contest will be announced at our World Games Finale Party on Wed, July 27th at 5PM.

Got Questions?

Email ONL teen librarians Matt Layne and Michelle Cheng at teens@oneallibrary.org with questions about teen program(s), summer reading, or book recommendations!
