Log Your Reading Minutes! Help Bedford Stay in the Minute Madness Competition! 

March 19, 2024

Okay, team! Great work! Bedford has made it into the third round of the Minute Madness competition after outreading Rutland last week.

This week, Bedford is the strong underdog matched up against favorite and reigning champion Burlington. Bedford needs all readers of every age to enter minutes before midday on Thursday.

Help stage an overthrow by logging your reading minutes. Sign up for the Minute Madness March 2024 challenge on Beanstack to participate https://bedfordlibrary.beanstack.org/ from anywhere and log minutes before noon on Thursday. Or bring in your paper log to the Bedford Free Public Library before noon on Wednesday to be counted before this week’s challenge curfew. 

It’s free to participate, and Beanstack readers are automatically entered into weekly raffles with prizes donated by the Friends of the Bedford Free Public Library.

Log all of the minutes spent reading – books, graphic novels, magazines, audiobooks; even time spent reading your favorite news sources such as The Bedford Citizen counts – here’s two minutes you can log for reading this article. Parents reading to a child can count minutes for both the parent and child! Listening to an audiobook on a car ride can multiply reading minutes for each of the passengers! Reading “Hamlet” for your English class (or fun) counts. 

Readers do not have to be a Bedford resident or Bedford library card holder to enter, just register on Beanstack with the Bedford Library team. 

A “What’s Bedford Thinking” January poll showed more than 50 percent of respondents read more than 20 books last year, and nearly ¾ read 10 or more books last year. It’s time to show off that bookworm pride and log those minutes today to boost Bedford to the next round. 

Go Team Bedford!
