Level Up Your Reading Challenge

Coming In September 2024

Bring your reading to the next level with PWPL’s Level Up Your Reading challenge, available for readers in grades K – 12. The more you read, the more points you earn! Track your progress, earn prizes, and be entered to win a grand prize in an annual drawing.

Program Description

Prince William Public Libraries is launching a new reading challenge this fall: Level Up Your Reading. This ongoing challenge will be open to grades K—12 and will present reading as a fun activity.


Level Up Your Reading is the result of feedback from patrons who expressed a desire for a reading challenge for elementary school-aged children after they complete 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.


Get Started

Upon registration, kids will receive a registration prize packet:

  • Book Journal

  • Pin Display Board

  • Bookmark

Once registered, participants will complete 10 levels by logging minutes read in their book journal or on the Beanstack tracker app. Each level requires logging 365 minutes (including minutes spent listening to audiobooks), with the option to log bonus minutes to round up to 400. After each level, readers will earn an enamel pin for their display board.


In addition to reading, Prince William Public Libraries will feature side quest programs every quarter to tie in with the Level Up Your Reading challenge, which loosely utilizes a video game structure and theme.


Once completing all 10 levels, each finisher will receive the following:


  • Certificate of Completion

  • Barnes & Noble $10.00 gift card

  • Book sleeve


All finishers will be entered in a grand prize drawing for a reading tablet, which will be awarded every fall beginning in 2025. One winner will be selected, with the hope that the program will grow and necessitate a winner per library branch.
