How it Works
Open to all ages! Register at any branch of the library or online using our new Reading Challenge platform, BEANSTACK. You can use the QR code to get the app on your mobile device. Using the app, you can scan the publisher barcode on the back and enter your books or search by title or author.
Record your Reading
Pick up a log sheet or log your titles on the Beanstack app. Keep track of your reading in whatever way is easiest for you. We just want you to READ! This year we are asking you to log titles read, one book for each Beanstack badge, but there are also badges you can earn for activities like going for a bicycle ride or reading out loud to a librarian. You can also get a badge for coming to our library performer events like Mesner Puppets and Serengeti Steve!
Getting Prizes and Completing the Program
When you sign up, you can come by one of the library branches and play Plinko! to win some fun library swag, food coupons, and activity tickets. When you have completed 8 badges in any combination of reading and activities, your reading challenge is complete. You need to come by one of the branches to get your prize, a cool green flying disc and a FREE book or book coupon.
You also earn up to two entries into our Grand Prize Drawing! (One for registering and one for completing.) Three names will be drawn, one from every branch, to each win a $100 Wal-Mart gift card! Additional names will be drawn for prize baskets and other great prizes after August 1.
**If you are a voracious megareader and you finish the challenge in, like, three days, ask about our SUMMER BADGE BOOK and our extra-challenging challenge for kiddos who love to READ!**
