Beanstack is a free online service that offers an innovative new way to connect children and their families with books and educational reading activities that match each person’s interests, age, and reading level. It also includes book and activity logging, badges, and registration for all members of the family under one account. Simply register one time to participate in library sponsored reading programs and activities all year round!
How Do I Start? To get the most out of your reading experience, we recommend that you create a Beanstack account. Parents can also create accounts for their children. In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter the books you have read, write book reviews and more. You will receive prizes as you progress and be entered into drawings at the end of the program.
Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age. There are five age groups: preschool, children, tween, teens, and adult. In order to be contacted about prizes and drawings, please include an email address and telephone number as part of your Beanstack profile.
