Read Beyond the Beaten Path

Welcome to Summer Reading 2022, where we are encouraging you to Read Beyond the Beaten Path! We are offering a Summer Reading program for all ages, with different requirements and prizes.

Ages 0-19

Kids ages 0-4 can participate by downloading our Early Literacy Bingo sheet from our website or picking up a copy in the Children’s Room. Score a bingo, and return it to the Children’s Room to claim your prize.

Kids ages 5-11 can log their reading using our Beanstack site online, or through the Beanstack app available in the Apple App Store, and the Google Play Store.

Kids ages 5-11 who read and log 2 hours of reading by Friday morning at 9 AM will be entered into that week’s prize drawing. Any kid who reads 14 hours by 8/11/2022 will earn a Topsfield Fair prize pack, which includes free admission (ages 8+), ride tickets, and more.

Teens ages 12-19 will receive a scratch-off bookmark with each checkout (one per day). Scratch off the circle. If you win a prize, turn your ticket in at the Children’s Room desk to claim it.

Your bingo sheet includes reading challenges and activities.

Score five in a row in any direction and score BINGO! Each five-in-a-row completed on your bingo sheet is another entry into our drawing for a chance to win our main prize! A bingo sheet with each box completed equals twelve entries.
