How Can I Participate?

To participate in the challenge, you will need to make sure you have registered for a Beanstack account. If you or someone in your household participated in a Summer Reading Club Challenge, then you already have one.

If not, here is how you can get started:

1. Visit your app store to download the Beanstack Tracker App to your smart phone or device, OR visit https://beinspired.beanstack.org to use the browser version.

2. Register yourself for an account. If more than one person in your household is registering for the reading challenge (we have three age groups to choose from), create one account for the whole family and add multiple readers. (TIP: make sure you look for Milton Public Library, Ontario. We’re the one with the bee logo)

3. Select your Read Woke challenge, based on your age.

How Do I Complete the Challenge?

The most important thing you need to do is read some Read Woke books (anything that challenges you to think about other people, other places, or situations new to you). Then, to ‘complete’ the challenge and be eligible for the Grand Prize Draws, you will need to earn each badge. To earn a badge, you will:

1. Read at least one book each month 

2. Tell us something you learned/enjoyed

3. Encourage others to read woke. Tell your friends, family, classmates, or colleagues about the book you read.

Craving more!? Why not participate in a program? We will be hosting some amazing programs each and every month during the Read Woke Challenge. We also encourage you to write book reviews and read reviews shared by others.
