What is Readers Club

Are you up for a challenge? If so, join Livingston Parish Library’s first-ever year-long reading challenge. 

Welcome to Livingston Parish Library’s Readers’ Club! Join us for a year-round reading challenge that will run from January 1st through December 31st of each year and will include prizes for reading 25, 50, 75, and 100 books within that year.

Along with reading or listening to books all year long, you can enter into monthly, themed challenges to win prizes each month. At the end of the challenge, Livingston Parish Library will host a Readers’ Club Reception to honor patrons that received Bronze (25), Silver (50), Gold (75), and Platinum (100) status.

LPL Readers’ Club is for patrons 18 and older.


Livingston Parish Library uses a web-based program called Beanstack to track progress for all its reading challenges.

You can log your books into Beanstack all year long to receive 'Logging Badges.' When you reach 25, 50, 75, and 100 books, you will receive a Reward in Beanstack to earn prizes. End-of-Year prizes will be awarded at the end of the challenge and at the Readers Club Reception.

    Monthly Themed Challenges

    Each month, there will be a reading challenge with a specific theme. If you read one book within that theme, you can enter to win a prize drawing for that month. Each month will have a different theme, and the book chosen will need to relate to that theme in some way. For example, with a theme of “Dog Days of Summer,” books can have themes, characters, or settings related to dogs or summer, the words "day" or "summer" in the title, a dog on the cover, etc.

    In Beanstack, log one book into an Activity Badge to complete that month’s challenge. If you complete an Activity Badge, you will be automatically entered into the monthly prize drawing. Logging must take place within the dates for the badge to earn it. Prizes will be drawn the first week of the month following the challenge.
