Summer reading is a fun program designed to engage all age groups in exploring new ideas, books and activities. The program is free and there are no fees for any of the events or activities. As you read books and engage in the activities, you are eligible to win points and prizes. The best way to track your progress is through the Beanstack app or website. Beginning June 15th, 2020, you can start recording your reading time and participate in the activities, located exclusively in Beanstack.
How do I Start?
To get the most out of your summer reading experience, we recommend that you create a Beanstack account. Parents can also create accounts for their children. In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter the books you have read, write book reviews and more. You will receive prizes as you complete point beanchmarks this summer. To register, visit the Beanstack website or login through the app.
Beanstack app available for iOS and Android.
Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age. There are two groups: families and teens/adults. If you wish to be contacted about prizes and drawings, please include an email address or telephone number as part of your Beanstack profile. We hope to use Beanstack for other reading programs in the future. Signing up today and you're set for all of our future offereings!
Paper more your speed?
We understand that not everyone has access to the internet or a desire to do so. By June 15th, you will be able to request a paper version of our program from our librarians and we will mail it to you or arrange for pick-up with our curbside service. We're just a phone call away at 608-938-4011.
