Register for Kids Summer Reading!

Sign up to participate in summer reading fun! This year, we'll be using Beanstack software to log reading and activities. Signing up for a new account and downloading the app only takes a few minutes. Once you're signed up, you can also download a paper tracking form if you'd prefer.

Please note: Due to a system change, all participants will need to create a new Beanstack account, even if you had an account for a previous Summer Reading challenge.

After you're registered, make sure to stop by the Children's Desk for your first Brag Tag!

Sign-Up for Beanstack

Kids summer reading is for anyone ages 0-5th grade. Rising 6th graders can participate in the Teen Summer Reading program.

  • To sign up for Teen Summer Reading, use the Teens tabs above
  • To sign up for Adult Summer Reading, use the Adults tab above
  • Find full instructions for creating a Beanstack account here.

Logging Your Reading 

Once your Beanstack account is set up, you decide how you want to log your reading to earn points - choose from minutes or books completed (we suggest logging minutes for kids reading chapter book independently)!

  • 30 minutes = 1 point
  • 1 book = 1 point

Learn more about logging your reading here.

Stop by the Children's Library and show us your progress each week for a new Brag Tag! When your reach 20 points, you get a book to keep.


In addition to reading, kids can earn points by completing activities through Beanstack. Show some gratitute, get outside, and create a game for your friends and family with our summer challenges! Earn badges that count at points toward your free book as you complete challenges.
