Books Like Us

January 1st-31st

Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. 

One lucky reader from the Rusk County Community Library will win $100 cash! 

Every badge earns you a ticket into the cash drawing. You earn badges by logging minutes and completing activities. Happy reading, Rusk County!

This Winter, participating communities are invited to explore these books, from authors spanning an array of diverse backgrounds. 

We challenge our patrons to read at least 20 minutes a day during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site. 

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits.
