Reading Programs

Beanstack is a tool for facilitating reading programs in our 19 libraries.  It’s easy and fun for the whole family! Participate as little or as much as you’d like. Our intention is to encourage a culture of reading through a variety of reading challenges.  Check out our current programs below. If you would like to get started, click here.

March is Reading Month (Click here)

March 1 – March 31

Children ages 2-10 can track their reading throughout March. For every day that they read 30 minutes, they earn a prize drawing ticket. They can enter to win a stuffed Pete the Cat doll or, a Pete the Cat game.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Year-round

Read 1,000 books before your child starts Kindergarten and track your progress using Beanstack. Reading with your child helps them learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge — all important skills that help prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten.

Summer Reading Challenge

June – August

Reading pays off! This summer, track your reading and win fun prizes. This program is for ages 0 and up. All ages are welcome!
