Adult Summer Reading Program

Register Online

Program runs May 25th through July 3rd

This year our Summer Reading program will be held online using the Beanstack website and mobile app – Google Play or Apple App Store. You can also pickup a paper registration and bingo card at the library if you prefer an offline option.

If using the offline option, be sure to turn in the Bingo card with a completed Bingo by July 3rd. Get a straight or diagonal bingo to be entered to win prizes. Get two bingos to be entered to win the grand prize!

The Way It Works

The adult program is for ages 18 and up. Earn badges on Beanstack by logging the books you read, by completing activities online (the activities are like attending virtual library events), and by writing book reviews. The badges will change to color from black/white as you earn them.

Earn 5 badges to get the completion badge and be entered into a prize drawing. Go above and beyond by earning 10 badges to be entered into our grand prize drawing!
