Join the Williamson County Public Library System’s Golden Ticket Themed Winter Reading Challenge

Residents of all ages are invited to participate in Williamson County Public Library System second annual Winter Reading Challenge which started on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, and ending on Wednesday, February 2, 2022. There are reading challenges with optional activities for three age groups: children ages birth-seventh grade, teens in seventh to twelfth grade, and adults eighteen years of age and older. Don’t miss out on the fun! Join today!

These free Winter Reading Challenges ask each registered participant to read for 10 hours for a free book and give everyone the option of participating in extra fun activities to earn small prizes. The WCPLS Winter Reading Challenge is available by registering today with Beanstack: or by logging into your existing Beanstack account.  Join the age appropriate winter reading challenge or visit your home library branch to register and pick up a paper reading log to participate.

The Beanstack mobile tracker app is available from the App Store, I-Tunes, and Google Play. Registration runs from Dec.1 2021-February 2, 2022.   Learn more about all the winter reading challenges available to different age levels on our WCPLS website page,

Children and teens who earn a prize, can visit their local branch to check in and pick it up. Prizes must be picked up in person at your home library branch. The deadline for picking up all prizes is February 19. Adults can pick up their prizes at the end of Winter Reading from February 2 – February 19.

We haven’t forgotten fun programs! We have holiday programs at many of our branches for different ages. We also have storytimes, reading to therapy dog programs, chess, and other fun events along the way too. In January Mr. Bond’s Science Guys will be visiting Fairview, Main and Nolensville Library Branches.  Check the library website calendar for these events and more happening throughout the WCPLS.

The WCPLS 2021 Winter Reading Program is made possible by financial support from our Williamson County Public Library Foundation.
