Holidays around the World Winter Reading Challenge

(ACCOMAC, VIRGINIA) December 3rd, 2021 – Winter fun is near and Eastern Shore Public Library is celebrating! Throughout the month of December, the Library is hosting a Holidays Around the World Reading Challenge on Beanstack, the online reading program! This new children’s activity combines fun reading and art challenges by visiting espl.beanstack.org and selecting the Holidays Around the World Reading Challenge. Complete activities and read books to earn tickets. Each ticket will be put into a raffle for cool prizes! The Holidays Around the World Reading Challenge is free and open to any Eastern Shore of Virginia child aged 1 to 18 years. A library card is not required.

Eastern Shore Public Library in Accomac and Northampton Free Library in Nassawadox will also have activity bags full of all kinds of Christmas goodies including a Christmas ornament craft, an activity booklet, and goodies. Stop by and visit one of the two libraries to pick up a free kit.

We will also be having a fun storytime program during December! Join us on December 21st at Northampton Free Library and December 27th at Eastern Shore Public Library for a fun storytime featuring winter-themed books and a fun craft where we make snowflake ornaments.

Library staff would love to see all the arts and crafts you do during the month so feel free to tag them on Instagram at @esplyouthservice. If you have any questions about the programs or using Beanstack, please email Tiffany Flores, Youth Services Librarian, at youthservices@espl.org or call 757-787-3400.
