Resources from birth to young adult populations including early literacy, programming, award winners, summer reading, and more.



Just in time for the New Year: The Winter Reading Challenge: Read for a Better World (All Ages) is available for pre-registration now on the Vermont libraries Beanstack page at https://vermont.beanstack.org/. The challenge starts January 1 and ends January 31. The challenge is available for free to all Vermonters.

Readers of all ages are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes a day and log their minutes using the Beanstack website or the mobile app. Participants can read books of their choosing, log minutes, participate in simple activities, and earn digital badges. Participants are encouraged to explore diversity, empathy, and action through literature by choosing books and stories from an array of diverse authors and topics.

There are many places readers can find lists of diverse books. One good place to start is We Need Diverse Books, which has compiled a list of sites that offer recommendations for diverse titles. There are also many fantastic diverse titles included in the Vermont youth book awards current and past nominee lists.

As a reminder, anyone who has created a Beanstack account in the past will not need to create a new account and will just need to register for the challenge. If you do not have an account you will need to create one before you are able to register. There are instructions on the Beanstack landing page for logging-in and creating accounts.

Early Literacy Story Time

Join us on Facebook Live every Tuesday morning at 10:30 am for stories and songs.  Story Time is a great place for children to gain literacy skills, with tips provided to assist caregivers in the promotion of those skills.
