Porter Library unveils new challenge for kids

Just as students return to school after the holiday break, Westlake Porter Public Library is unveiling a new reading challenge: 100 Books Before Graduation. Tailored for students in grades 5-12, the challenge asks them to read 100 books before they graduate.

Students can log their reading at westlakelibrary.beanstack.org, where they can earn badges and entries into grand drawings pulled quarterly. Those who reach 100 books read will earn a WPPL coffee tumbler. The challenge began Jan. 2.

“Whether they move directly into jobs or continue their education, strong literacy skills will be the key to success for graduating students. This program is aimed at setting students up for success in their post-school life,” said Library Director Andrew Mangels.

For more information or to register for 100 Books Before Graduation, visit westlakelibrary.beanstack.org or call 440-871-2600.
