Read books, have adventures, win prizes! Use Beanstack to keep track of your time spent reading alone or with others. Audiobooks and Ebooks count too! You can also write reviews of the books that you’ve been enjoying. And check out all the fun activity badges we’ve included this year. 

Each week participants will be entered into a prize drawing as long as you have logged minutes, written a review or logged an activity that week on Beanstack. This year’s prizes are all gift cards from local businesses like Kidcasso, the Dance Academy and more!

There’s so much going on this summer. Check out our events calendar!

Tween & Teen

Rising 6th – 12th graders can use our online reading log to keep track of the time spent reading. Remember, all reading counts–read a book, magazine, or e-book; listen to an audiobook; read aloud to a sibling; read aloud with your family. 

Tweens and Teens entering 6th-12th in the 2023-24 school year can win prizes! As long as you are registered on Beanstack, you will be entered in a drawing to win a prize each week of summer reading, as long as you also log minutes; write a book review on Beanstack; complete an adventure; or attend a library program (and fill in the relevant adventure).
