86 FSS Libraries: Summer Reading 2023

Ramstein Vogelweh Summer Reading Program

Don't forget to come to our Summer Reading Kickoff Party,
June 9th at Vogelweh Library, 11:00 - 14:00!


The Goal

For every registered reader to read for a total of 1,500 minutes between June 9th and August 3rd.

And our overall goal is for the KMC community to reach 2,500,000 minutes for the whole summer!

The Rewards

Readers will collect and use tickets to choose from a variety of prizes at the Summer Reading Prize Store, located at both Ramstein and Vogelweh Libraries. Readers will earn 1 prize store ticket for every 60 minutes logged in Beanstack, up to 50 tickets.

New prizes will be added to the prize stores each week. The stores at each library may contain unique prizes for that location. Readers may also want to collect and save their tickets for bigger prizes later in the summer!

Registered readers will also receive a free “Find Your Voice” Summer Reading T-shirt while supplies last!

All readers who complete the 1,500 minute challenge are automatically entered into the raffle prize drawings. Readers will earn additional raffle prize entries for every 60 minutes logged over the 1,500-minute challenge; prize store tickets are earned up to the 3,000 minute mark.

Please see here for prize store listings and our Raffle and Grand Prizes.
