Summer Reading Club
What is Summer Reading Club?
No one wants to experience a "summer slide" in their reading skills.
With Summer Reading Club, you can have fun and encourage kids to learn and grow while on break.
For six weeks in June and July, we incorporate daily educational and entertaining activities for kids that keep them engaged with learning, and offer prize opportunities for completion of weekly reading goals and activities!
This year we're celebrating summer "ALL TOGETHER NOW!"
Share reading. Share kindness.
Reading can instill principles of kindness, friendship, unity, and diversity in everyone, especially kids as they learn and grow!
REGISTER FOR SUMMER READING CLUB
• Kids ages 0 -17 are eligible to sign up for SRC.
• Registration can be done online, or in-person at the youth services desk.
• You do not have to have a library card to participate in SRC, but it is encouraged to get one so you can check out books to complete the weekly reading goals! Learn how to get a library card under the "My Account" tab in the upper menu.
Registration and logging reading time can be done online by signing up with Beanstack.
When using Beanstack, caregivers can keep a log of all their children's reading goals and activities in one place.
Upon completion of reading time or activities, kids earn badges they can use to redeem for prizes at the Youth Services desk.
If you have used Beanstack already for previous Summer Reading Clubs, then you'll need to remember what email you used, and what password was set up.
If you don't recall your password and need to reset it, please visit the Youth Services Desk during business hours to reset it.
REGISTERING IN PERSON
If you need assistance in getting signed up for Summer Reading Club, visit the Youth Services desk and staff will be happy to help!
You can also pick up a paper log to keep up with your children's goals.
Please keep up with your paper log!
You'll need to bring it with you each time you want to redeem prizes, and replacement logs will not be given out.
