 June Reading Logs and Event Calendar

Download the 2020 June Event Calendar below. There are also hard copy reading logs you can download...either as a reference in addition to logging online with Beanstack, or as a substitute instead of recording online on Beanstack. If you use the paper reading log, please call us periodically so we can keep track of your progress and so your reading time will count towards the community goal of 300,000 minutes.
