Winter Reading Challenge Winners Announced

From January 1st to January 31st, Lincoln City Libraries participated in Beanstack’s Second Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Mark Cuban. We challenged our patrons to read at least 2.5 million minutes during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site. Hundreds of libraries and schools across the nation encouraged their communities to read a target number of minutes and books.
