BeanoMischief Makers: children's summer reading challenge 2018

For this year's summer reading challenge we're off to Beanotown, where rumour has it there's a treasure chest full of epic pranks waiting to be discovered.

Pieface, Rubi, JJ, Gnasher and Dennis are on the trail of the hidden treasure, and they're looking for some friends to join in the adventure. Sign up for free at the library and get your very own map of Beanotown. Read six library books, or more, over the holidays to collect special stickers to add to your map. Collect them all to discover where the treasure is hidden and complete the challenge. Visit your library for more information and to sign up. Look out for special events over the holidays to help you complete the challenge, too!
