Members Rocked the Winter Reading Challenge
The reading event comes on the heels of the 2020 Winter Reading Challenge in January. Nearly 500 York County residents of all ages participated in the nationwide reading challenge. York County Libraries set a local goal of 10,000 minutes of reading. Area readers far exceeded that goal by collectively reading 8,807 books and 423,326 minutes in one month.
Take the Spring into Reading Challenge
With more families staying at home, reading is a great activity to keep everyone entertained while practicing social distancing. Take a look around the house. Are there books tucked on a shelf or on a nightstand that you intended to read? Now is the perfect time to catch up. For those wanting something new to read, the YCL digital shelves are open 24/7.
Here are a few quick links to get you started:
- Check out eBooks and audios through Axis 360.
- Find your favorite comics on ComicsPlus.

- Read and log your minutes at yorklibraries.beanstack.org or download the Beanstack Tracker by ZooBean, Inc. It’s free!
Will you help us top our current record of 423,326 minutes?! We can’t wait to see the results. We’ll announce the results in early May!
