Chatham County Public Libraries invite children and teens to participate in its 2021 Virtual Summer Reading Challenge “Tails and Tales” from June 3 through July 31. This program, sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Community Library, is open to children and teens, ages 2 and up. Readers will participate online this year by signing up on the libraries’ Beanstack site, https://chathamnc.beanstack.org, and win prizes for completing 10 hours of reading. Using Beanstack, readers can log their time and titles online, as well as create book reviews for others to see. All readers who reach the 10-hour goal will earn a free book and will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $50 gift certificate to McIntyre’s Books. The Virtual Summer Reading Challenge kicks off online on June 3rd at 4 p.m. with a special program “Animal Stories in African Art,” an interactive virtual program hosted by the N.C. Museum of Art. This event will be most appropriate for children ages 4-10, but everyone is invited to participate and learn. Registration information can be found on the libraries’ online Events Calendar.
