What is Beanstack?
Beanstack is a subscription library tool that is primarily used as a digital reading program management system.

How does the reading program function work?
Similar to what we used for the Summer READ 2020, we are forging ahead with the Adult Winter READ using Beanstack.  This challenge is ONLY for those age 18+.  If you registered for the 2020 Summer READ, your account remains.  You will choose this Challenge once you are logged into your account.

Beanstack allows you to:

  • Log reading by number of books read this time around and complete activities
  • Receive electronic badges
  • Be notified of prizes earned
  • Write book reviews
  • Scan ISBN code on the back of the book for easy entry

Formats available this winter:

  • Online
  • Digital option with Android and iOS download app
  • Paper option to complete on the back and drop in the entry box found near the library entrance
