Announcing a collaboration – and competition! – between local libraries: Minute Madness! Capture the thrill of March Madness with a tournament for readers. Starting March 1, Gleason patrons can help Carlisle fight for a spot in the Minute Madness Championship. The libraries with the most minutes logged as of 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8th, will enter the Sweet Sixteen, and the brackets will continue weekly until a final champion emerges on April 5th.
Patrons of all ages can register at gleasonlibrary.beanstack.com or in the Beanstack app. Log your minutes read to help us run a full court press against neighboring libraries like Bedford and Burlington, and others across the state from Lunenburg to Mashpee. If you prefer a paper log, you can pick one up at the Library reference desk – if you’re logging on paper, please return your log for the first week to the Library by 9pm on Tuesday, March 7th.
