From Sep. 1 to Sep. 30, Botetourt County Libraries will participate in the “NASA’s Artemis Project: To the Moon, Mars, and Beyond!” reading challenge sponsored by the Space Science Institute. We challenge our patrons to read at least 600 minutes and keep track of their reading during the challenge on our Beanstack site at botetourtva.beanstack.org. Hundreds of libraries across the nation will be reading and learning alongside us for a chance to win circulation backpacks of STEM-related resources from the Space Science institute.

The Space Science Institute will award circulation backpacks with STEM-related resources to top performing libraries. Happy reading, Botetourt County!

Here’s How it Works
