Imagine your story

The summer reading program has something for all ages from birth to senior citizens. This year’s program begins June 15 and will be completely online. Registration and logging will be available through Beanstack.

Beanstack is an online database that tracks your reading. All you need is a valid email address. As you read and log, Beanstack will award you virtual badges. If you already have an account, just sign in!


As with previous years, participants can still read anything they want, including books, ebooks, magazines, graphic novels, comics, or audio books. Beanstack will keep track of everything, and as you earn grand prize drawing entries, Beanstack will instruct you on how to enter the prize drawings.


Kids (Ages 0 – 12):

For every 10 hours you read, you will receive an entry into a grand prize drawing of your choice. You will have a chance to win a Kindle Fire, Lego® kits, a castle tent, a stuffed dragon or unicorn, and more.
