NOTE: If you forget your password, try "beanstack" since we often suggest using this for a password. Otherwise, email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your password reset.
Register on Beanstack by June 23 to be entered to win one of three Amazon gift cards ($50, $25, $15)!
Reading and Activity Challenges
- Track your child's progress on Beanstack from Friday, June 2 through Saturday, August 9.
- Earn badges and virtual tickets to be used for raffles at the end of the program. Participants also earn prizes depending on the number of badges earned.
Here's how it works
- Every day that you read or someone reads to you, log it on the virtual reading log on Beanstack. If you read at least 5 out of 7 days each week you will earn a badge for that week.
- You can also earn badges by completing activities and by submitting book reviews. Badges can be redeemed for prizes at the end of the summer and they also earn virtual tickets for raffle drawings. Raffle prizes will be added as the summer progresses and you will be able to choose which prizes you would like a chance to win. You will also be able to increase your chances by adding more than one of your earned virtual tickets to the raffle.
- If you earn at least 16 out of the 32 total badges by the end of the program you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a $50 or $25 Amazon gift card.
- But you can take it one step further! If you earn all 32 badges by the end of the program you will automatically be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card!
- Please note that in order to be eligible for prizes, raffles and drawings, you MUST use your Beanstack account to track your reading, activity participation and book reviews.
Closing party on both August 8 and 9
- Tuesday, August 8 from 4 pm - 6 pm
- Wednesday, August 9 from 11 am - 1 pm
No registration necessary. Drop in either day during party hours to celebrate a full summer of reading and learning. There will be fun, food, crafts, and kids can "shop" for prizes earned by logging their reading and activities on Beanstack.
The Amelia Givin Library Summer Learning Program also includes:
In-Person Programs on Tuesday evenings and Wednesdays during the day
