Register for the 2021-22 Window to the World Book Challenge, open to students in 4th through 6th grade! Beginning September 1, 2021, 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!

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!
