Changes Coming to This Year's Summer Reading Club!

Changes are coming to this year’s Summer Reading Club! Summer is almost here, and with it comes our yearly summer events, activities and reading programs for all ages. This year we have switched things up a bit to help digitize and simplify the way you (our Patrons) can keep track of your personal reading, as well as your children’s reading. In the past, we have relied solely on paper reading logs for all of our programs. But with the success and ease of last year’s test with our Teen Reading Program, we are now transitioning to the incredible online tool Beanstack. With Beanstack, parents can easily keep track of multiple children’s reading, get book recommendations and write reviews, as well as keep track of their own personal reading -- all through one app on a smart phone, tablet, or computer. (Paper reading logs will also be available). We are excited to  introduce this new tool for our youth, teen and adult reading clubs this summer, as well as in future reading programs. Join us on Wednesday, May 30th for a short class on how to register and use Beanstack, as well as get a sneak peak at how our Summer Activities & Reading Logs will be setup.
