The 2023 Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge ran from June 24 until August 26, 2023.

We will be doing all of our contest draws on Tuesday, September 5 and will contact all of the winners directly. Good luck, and thanks for participating!

If you would like to sign up for one of our other Reading Challenges, visit out Beanstack page.


The Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) is back for another fun-filled season of reading, activities, prizes, and special events!

This year, we will have four Challenge categories: Early Readers, Kids, Teens, and Adults. Participants will log their reading and complete activities, earning badges and raffle tickets for fun prizes as they go. 

The goal for all four programs is the same: read for 20 hours. 

 We will be using Beanstack, a user-friendly online SRC tool, that allows readers to keep track of their reading, participate in activities, and enter to win prizes*.

Earlybird online signups will begin in Beanstack on June 15th. Everyone who signs up for the Summer Reading Challenge between June 15 and June 23rd will be entered to win a Nova Scotia Museums Family Pass, good for a year’s worth of admission to all 28 Nova Scotia Museum sites!

Keep an eye on this space for more Summer Reading news!

*Please note that all prizes must be picked up at one of our 11 locations.
