Summer Reading 2024: Read, Renew, Repeat ♻️🐢🐻

June 20 - August 15

Join us at the library this summer to Read, Renew, and Repeat! Dive into stories, express yourself, and discover something new about nature and the natural world. Make the most of your summer by logging your reading for a chance to win fun prizes! Read 900 minutes (15 hours) from June 20 through August 16 to be entered in our grand prize drawing. 

How to Participate

There are two ways to log minutes: 

ONLINE: Visit or download the Beanstack app to register with Beanstack to log your minutes. You can sign up your entire family and view progress with one username. Enroll in the "Summer 2024: Read, Renew, Repeat" challenge for your age group (adults, teens, or children).

ON PAPER: Use our paper log to track your titles and minutes every time you read. If you need more space, request another log or track on an additional sheet of paper. Bring your log to the library to update your progress.


Read 900 minutes (15 hours) this summer and you'll be entered to win one of our grand prizes:

  • A Kindle Paperwhite (Adults)
  • A Camping Tent (Teens)
  • A Hammock Chair (Ages 8-12)
  • A Camping Tent Playset (Ages 4-7)

Weekly Prizes
adults and teens, every 60 minutes you log will increase your chances of winning one of our weekly prizes. Log your minutes by midnight each Friday to count for that week's prize drawing.

For children, earn tickets for our weekly drawings by visiting the library, attending library programs, or checking out books.

About Beanstack

Through Beanstack, the library offers reading challenges such as our Summer Reading Program and Minute Madness reading challenge. Readers can participate through the easy-to-use app or website.

Beanstack helps you log the books you read, track your time spent reading each day, set reading goals, participate in library reading challenges, and win cool badges.

Recording your reading can be as easy as using the Beanstack mobile app on your phone to scan the bar code on the back of any book. You can then enter the number of pages, minutes, or hours that you’ve read.
