If you haven’t signed up for summer reading, you have just one more week to do so and turn in your completed paperwork! This year’s summer reading program will end on August 15th.
But don’t worry – you can do it all online! Our traditional summer reading program, which relied on paper logs, regular visits to the library, and attendance at library programs, was impacted by the ongoing disruption due to COVID-19, and we needed to offer something that could work from a distance… Powered by Beanstack, our new program hosting software, there are 7 Summer Reading Challenges for all ages. It’s easy! Just read and complete activities to earn badges. Each challenge (except Red Stick @Home) has both a reading/logging component and an activity component. The rules, requirements, badges, and incentives vary based on the age group. You can find them all on the library’s Beanstack summer reading website.
Here’s a quick video from our May Library Road Show on our summer reading program:
