Winter Reading Challenge uses the Beanstack platform. Hundreds of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. If we reach the collective goal, "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban will donate $35,000 to top participating libraries to expand access to the resources we offer within the community.
