Winter Reading Challenge

Every person has a rich history and unique stories to tell — dive deeper into your own this winter! We will celebrate our histories and stories passed down from generations. Get cozy, explore your library, and discover fun activities while earning virtual badges and prizes!

From January 2 – February 17, Fairfield Public Library is participating in “Where We Come From,” a winter reading challenge sponsored by Beanstack. We challenge our patrons to earn 500 points over the 7 weeks and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at Earn fun cozy winter badges and bonus prizes for logging your reading, completing activities, and submitting book reviews.

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation are encouraging their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn prizes from Beanstack. Happy reading, Fairfield!
