DAVENPORT, IOWA (September 30, 2021) — Teen readers (ages 11-19) are invited to take part in this annual teen challenge to see which QC Libraries' teens can read the most during the month of October!

Every QC teen reader who reads for at least 1,000 minutes will be entered into a grand prize drawing to win a $100 Visa gift card!

Keep track of your minutes spent reading on www.davenportlibrary.beanstack.com, the Beanstack app, or a paper log that will be available in the Teen Area of participating libraries.

As a bonus, Davenport teens will get a ticket to enter in exclusive prize drawings for every 250 minutes they log reading! Prizes include a moody octopus plushie, a set of Posca paint-markers, color-changing LED lights, a watercolor paint-set, a galaxy lamp, and more. Participants will also be invited to the Teen Reading Challenge Party, which will be held in conjunction with the Teen Video Contest Awards.

This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information visit www.davenportlibrary.com or call the library at (563) 326-7832.
