Children’s Fall Reading Challenge


Say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn with Mashpee Public Library’s new Fall Reading Challenge! How would you like to earn a free cupcake from Cupcake Charlie’s just for reading this fall? The Library will mail a cupcake token to every student who reaches the minimum goal of 1,000 minutes of reading. 

Students in preschool through grade six are being asked to read for 20 minutes a day at least 5 days per week this fall. 20 minutes x 5 days x 10 weeks of fall = the goal of 1,000 minutes. You can select your own reading materials including books, magazines, graphic novels and audio books… any kind of reading counts!

Students can log the minutes that they read online and will earn a virtual badge for every 250 minutes. Registration is available now and logging begins October 1 and runs through December 15. Just like the Summer Reading Challenge, there are four levels of accomplishment:  

   Bronze Medal Reader – over 500 minutes

   Silver Medal Reader – over 1,000 minutes

   Gold Medal Reader – over 2,000 minutes 

   Platinum Medal Reader – over 3,000 minutes.  

In order to participate in the Fall Reading Challenge, patrons will be using the library’s new Online Reading Tracking Software called Beanstack. Readers of all ages can register today in seconds as individuals or a family. If you are already registered on Beanstack, just log in and join the Fall Challenge! If you have any questions about using Beanstack, please email

Beanstack, an Online Reading Tracking Software, is made possible with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
