Keep cozy with reading and help our town win the trophy in the tri-town Brrrrwicks Adult Winter Reading Challenge!
Read (or listen to audiobooks) to win points for our town and tickets so you can enter a drawing for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card (2 available), a $100 Barnes and Noble gift card (2 available), or a $100 Hannaford gift card (2 available).
Adult readers with a library card from the Berwick, South Berwick, or North Berwick public libraries may participate either online through the website Beanstack or with a paper version of the Winter Reading Challenge that can be picked up at the library. Beanstack access and paper tracker forms will be available at the end of December.
There are two different versions of the challenge available: Chillin’ at the Base with a Good Book or Race to the Peak. Pick one challenge or try to complete both!
CHALLENGE 1: Chillin’ at the Base with a Good Book Challenge
Read any adult and/or young adult books of your choosing. For every 5 books you complete, you will earn 3 tickets to enter for a chance to win prizes and 3 points for your town’s climbing team to advance up the mountain. Repeat as often as you like.
CHALLENGE 2: Race to the Peak Challenges
Read adult and/or young adult books that match the reading prompts. Complete a set of 5 reading prompts and earn 5 tickets you can enter for a chance to win prizes, plus 5 points to help your town’s climbing team surge toward the peak.
Reading prompts will be revealed at the end of December.

Let Us Put Some Books Together for You!
Tired or your reading choices? Here is a way to get some fresh books that we select based on your past reading interests.
Librarians will select the books, place them on hold, and notify you when they are ready to be picked up (must be picked up within a week).
When you check out a Book Bundle, you’re checking out each item in the bundle, and they can be returned separately.
NOTE: Books in bundles will be books from our shelves, if you’ve searched the catalog and are looking for specific titles from other libraries, you must request them directly via the MILS catalog.
