100 Books Before College

NEWS | KIDS | YOUNG ADULT | PARENTS | 1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN | 100 BOOKS BEFORE COLLEGE | FIND A BOOK | VIRTUAL PROGRAM DISCLAIMER

Take the Challenge! Read 100 books before you graduate from high school. For students in grades 9 – 12.

What's in it for me?

  • Reading improves your vocabulary and test scores. Plus, reading prepares you for life after high school while helping you become a more creative, open-minded person.
  • For every 25 books you read, you'll get a prize and an entry for an Apple Watch.
  • At 100 books, you'll receive a college supply kit and a Certificate of Completion.

How do I start?

  • Create an account on online or download the Beanstack app on your smartphone to get started.
  • Log your books through Beanstack.
  • Read books from this list of suggestions or choose your own.
  • We'll keep track of the number of books you read and will send you an email when you earn another prize and drawing entry.
  • Come in to any library at 25, 50, 75, and 100 books for your prizes and final reward.

Tag us in your reading adventures! #100Books
