How: Summer Reading Works!

Sign up on Beanstack and log your reading (includes being read to, for you pre-readers!). Every 60 minutes of reading earns you a virtual raffle ticket. 

  • Register starting SAT, JUNE 4. 
  • Track reading minutes and complete activities online.
  • Read for 60 minutes, log your minutes, and get a virtual raffle ticket. 
  • Complete an activity and get a virtual raffle ticket. When you read for an activity, track those minutes because they count too!
  • Each ticket can be put towards the chance to win a prize! Prizes for kids include giant stuffed animals, Lego kits, night lights, gift certificates, Camelbak packs, and more. Prizes for high school students and adults are gift cards for local businesses.
  • We'll draw raffle prize winners every week! We'll notify you by phone or email.
  • Click here for ocean-themed book lists or get recommendations from our Personal Librarian service.
  • Last day to log minutes and complete activities is SUN, AUG 7, by 6 p.m.
