Ocean County Library Rolls Out
Dual Reading Challenges Online

TOMS RIVER, NJ – Social distancing matters, but it doesn’t interfere with dual reading competitions for Ocean County Library card holders:

The Cabin Fever Challenge and the 2020 Teen Reads Challenge are as close as your computer or mobile device, and prizes await the winners.

Registration for both is ongoing at the Ocean County Library website. Log selections and mark progress through the free Beanstack Tracker, available for iOS and Android, and compatible with Alexa devices. One Beanstack account can cover all family members.

The Cabin Fever Challenge is open to all ages. To be eligible for prizes, entrants read, or listen to, three books, and complete five activities that can be found in the Library’s online resources.

The Teen Reads Challenge entails one book each month, through December 31. Entrants are eligible for monthly prizes, and also for grand prize giveaways at the end of 2020.

The OCL website contains the Young Adult suggested reading list, and eBooks and audiobooks downloadable through Hoopla, OverDrive, and RBDigital.

While you’re logging the books you’ve read, you can also offer your assessments of them in quick reviews.
