This challenge will last from March to December and includes ten different categories. They are as follows: Women’s Voices, Diverse Abilities, Asian American Voices, LGBTQ+ Voices, Refugee/Immigrant Voices, Race in America, Hispanic/Latino American Voices, Poverty/Homelessness, Indigenous Peoples’ Voices, and African American Voices. Once you record a book for a category in Beanstack, you will earn a badge. If you complete the challenge by earning every badge by the end of 2022, you can pick up an LPCPL branded tote bag at your home library location.
To register for Diverse Voices, you can either get started here or download the Beanstack app on your phone. Then, you just need to create an account. Simply enter your information and create a username and password. If you need assistance, you can call the library at 219-362-6156 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you are logged in to Beanstack, you will be able to see the challenges that are available and get started! Diverse Voices will be listed as Read Woke, since it is a larger challenge that we are taking part in.
