Did you know the library has a free, online reading tracker service for customers to participate in reading programs, log their reading, access book lists and complete activity track challenges? Beanstack is provided to cardholders and much like the popular site Goodreads, it also keeps a log of the books you have read, but it links right to the library’s online catalog. This is helpful if you are looking through the recommended reading lists available on Beanstack for your next book!
Originally used as a platform for the annual Summer Reading Program, Beanstack is also host to the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program that launched in January for children ages 5 and under with their caregivers, as well as seasonal Activity Track challenges that keep readers engaged throughout the year.
The Summer Reading Program starts June 18, so sign up for an account now to pre-register! Already have an account? Log in to pre-register for upcoming programs and participate in the Spring Activity Challenge.
New this year, and just in time for Summer Reading, Beanstack is launching a mobile app. Download the free app onto your tablet or smartphone and log in to easily access your account on the go! This feature will be especially helpful when logging the books shared at story times throughout the year. The app is available for free on the App Store and Google Play.
If you have questions or need help navigating Beanstack, ask a staff member on your next library visit.
