LIHUE — The Hawaii State Public Library System is one of 100 communities challenged by Beanstack and “Shark Tank” personality Mark Cuban to collectively read 1 million minutes during the inaugural “Winter Reading Challenge.”
“If we all read 1,000,000 minutes together in January, Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to First Book (a nonprofit dedicated to building literacy skills among children) and he will also give $10,000 to top performing libraries to use for their community programs or donate to nonprofit organizations in the area,” according to a press release.
Those in the challenge will be entered into a prize drawing. The more you read, the more chances to win. There will be one prize winner statewide each for a child, teen and adult. Prizes are sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawaii.
Read and log your minutes online between Jan. 1 to 31. Follow the international challenge at: #WinterRead2018.
