Welcome to the 2020 Summer Reading Program!

The library is taking our Summer Reading Program online using Beanstack. This web-based or mobile app will track your reading activities so you can earn “badges.” Other library-related activities have badges to earn too. Examples include attending a virtual event, downloading an ebook, or using our Curbside Delivery service. Some activities offer a virtual “prize” or entry in a drawing.

One of the benefits of Beanstack that we are most excited about is that parents or guardians can create a family account and log everyone’s reading and activities in the same place. We hope you enjoy using Beanstack!

Summer Reading 2020 for Kids, Teens, and Adults

The Summer Reading Program will run from July 6 through August 1. Our theme is “Dig Deeper.” Everyone from babies, toddlers, and kids, to teens and adults can participate to win badges by completing reading and activity requirements in their age category.

To register, scroll down on this page and click on the Dig Deeper logo image for the age-appropriate program. At the Beanstack registration screen, you will be given the option to register for additional people.
