From January 1st to January 31st, Marshes of Glynn Libraries will participate in the inaugural nationwide Winter Reading Challenge. We challenge our patrons to read at least 10 hours during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at http://moglibraries.beanstack.org. Over 100 libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. If we reach the nationwide goal, “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban will donate $35,000 to the organization “First Book,” which provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need.
