Read City USA - Adventure Begins at Your Library

Welcome! With help from groups like yours, we will meet Mayor Jacobs' 2024 challenge to complete as many literacy "missions" as we can! Each participant will earn a prize from the "loot box" for every five missions completed.

The 2024 reading challenges begin January 30. Pick up gameboards (poster-size group gameboards are available upon request) at your nearest location and join the Daring Deeds challenge in Beanstack.

It's easy to track your group's mission status with Beanstack tracking software. To get started, register your group. Follow the steps below or download the step-by-step guide with screen shots.

Pick up or request materials

Pick up more gameboards at any location, request a poster-size version perfect for groups tracking together, or print your own activities.

Earn prizes

Participants of all ages complete five missions to "level up" and earn a prize. Unlock a bonus prize when you complete all five levels (25 missions total).
