Summer Reading 2022: Now through August 12!

Summer Reading 2022: June 18-August 12!

Summer Reading 2022 starts on Saturday, June 18 and runs through Friday, August 12! Join us for reading rewards, special events, and more! Our theme this year is "Read Beyond the Beaten Path" and will include Summer Camp themed fun.

In Person is Back! This year, paper tickets, reading logs, and registration have returned! You can register in person, log your time on paper, and get paper tickets for in-person prize boxes.

Online is here, too (and better than ever): We will also have an optional Online Summer Reading portion that is much easier to use than years past with our new software Beanstack. Online Summer Reading gives you the option to log your time or get virtual raffle tickets through Beanstack. If you also sign up for the online version, you can still log on paper and/or collect paper tickets if you prefer (and vice versa).

Why use the online summer reading?

  • If you have a ton of tickets to fill out at one time, it can be easier than writing them all out by hand.
  • Going on vacation? You can enter in your raffle tickets from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
  • You can’t lose your summer reading log.
  • You might like virtual time logging and find it easier than the paper version.
  • It does the math for you—13 minutes there, 75 minutes there, it will add it all up into hours.

You can use Beanstack as a website or an app, and use it along side of the paper version of summer reading if you'd like to (examples: you can log your time virtually and come in person to get paper tickets, or just use the online version for when you are on vacation, etc.)

How do you register for Summer Reading? On or after Saturday, June 18:
