Track Your Reading
Track your reading online, or download the Beanstack app onto your device. Use Beanstack to log how many minutes you spend reading. (There is even a timer in the app!) As you log your reading, you can collect virtual "reading badges." Throughout the summer, you can stop by the library to select a prize from our treasure box for each reading badge you have earned.
For being a Summer Reader, your name will be entered into drawings for prizes. The more you read, the more entries you will earn. We will draw prize winners weekly. Also, at the end of the summer we will draw for several bigger prizes in our Grand Prize Drawing on July 24th.
The first week of reading runs May 30th - June 4th. We will draw for prizes at the end of each week. The last day to log minutes is Saturday, July 22nd.
We have lots of fun things happening almost every day at the library this summer! By participating in different activities, you can earn special "activity badges" in Beanstack. These badges earn you additional entries into our weekly prize drawings as well additional entries for the Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the summer.
