Winter Reading Challenge

The Nutley Public Library will participate in the inaugural nationwide winter reading challenge.

We challenge our patrons to read at least 620 minutes (20 minutes or more a day) during the month of January and keep track of their reading on Beanstack.

Over 100 libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books.

If we reach the nationwide goal, “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to the organization “First Book,” which provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need.

Prizes will be given to top readers in each age category.

The challenge is open to all ages. Those interested can pre-register at on December 3rd, and may start logging books/minutes on January 1.
