Children’s Online Program with Badge Book

Login to your Beanstack account (or register if you do not already have an account from previous Summer Library Programs) and select to participate in the 2022 Kids SLP.

  1. Log 60 minutes of reading to earn a virtual badge.
  2. Receive a free Beanstack Badge Book that is full of fun activities and stickers (while supplies last). The Badge Book follows along with the online program to earn even more virtual badges. Pick up your Beanstack Badge Book at our 2411 S. Kensington Dr location after you’ve registered.
  3. Finish the program by earning all 10 virtual Reading badges (logging 600 minutes of reading this summer).

Teen Online Program

Login to your Beanstack account (or register if you do not already have an account from previous Summer Library Programs) and select to participate in the 2022 Teen SLP.

  1. Log two hours of reading in a week to earn that week’s virtual Reading badge.
  2. All who sign up for the Teen program will receive a free book while supplies last.
  3. Finish the program by earning 8 of the 9 virtual Reading badges and be automatically entered into the Grand Prize Drawing.

Adult Online Program

Login to your Beanstack account (or register if you do not already have an account from previous Summer Library Programs) and select to participate in the 2022 Adult SLP.

  1. Log 30 minutes of reading in a week to earn that week’s virtual badge and be automatically entered into the weekly prize drawing for a free book. Technically, we don’t care if you read less than 30 minutes, but we have to choose an amount of minutes in order for the program to think someone earned a badge. So, even if you read less, it’s ok to say you read 30 minutes that week — we just want you to read something.
  2. Participate in Activities to earn additional virtual badges and drawing entries to win a free book (3 of the 4 Activities are attending specific Library programs).
  3. Finish the program by earning at least 6 virtual Reading badges and be automatically entered into the Grand Prize Drawing. Earn an extra Grand Prize entry by completing the ‘Write Reviews in InfoSoup’ Activity which asks you to submit 2 book reviews in InfoSoup.
