2021-22 Window to the World Book Challenge!

September 1, 2021 - May 31, 2022

All day

Waterville Public Library


Register for the 2021-22 Window to the World Book Challenge, open to students in 4th through 6th grade! From September 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022, let’s go exploring together!

What makes this different from a book club? Participants choose their own titles, write a book review, and earn virtual badges in Beanstack, our online data collection tool. When they complete a book from a world region, not only will they receive a digital badge but also a physical button to show their achievement! After all eight badges have been collected, participants can choose a prize from our book and prize list. All those who complete the challenge will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a 2022 summer pool pass to the Waterville City Pool!

Signing up for Beanstack is easy:

  1. Go to:
  2. Create a user account and add reader accounts for each child participating.
  3. Log books read and activities done to unlock electronic badges and real prizes!

It can be fiction or non-fiction! There will not be virtual club meetings. This self-paced program may be repeated with new titles every academic school year from 4th through 6th grade.
