Track your reading adventures with Beanstack!
We have an exciting new addition to our library! It's called Beanstack it’s the world’s easiest way to keep track of all the books you read. We’ll keep all your stats for you, cheer you on while you work towards your program goals, and let you know when you’ve earned a badge when you hit a milestone. When the library program ends, you keep your account, and your reading history — it’s always free, and you can keep right on logging your leisure reading. When the next library program comes around, no need to re-register — just click on it, and you’re in.
Our shiny new Beanstack page can be found here and our Adult Reading Challenge is our inaugural reading challenge available on the app. We will be adding more challenges for kids and teens later in the year.
How do I log my reading and challenge activities in Beanstack?
If this is the first time you've used Beanstack Register as an Individual or Family, otherwise Sign In to get started.
Then you can flip your book over and use your phone to scan the bar code on the back; the Beanstack mobile app makes it that easy. Or you can simply enter the book title and author. If you want to get fancy, you can also enter the number of pages, minutes, or hours (nice work!) that you read. If the challenge you're participating in uses Activities, they’ll be there on your screen — just click the ones you’ve done.
What are the badges in Beanstack, are they prizes?
Every time you hit a reading milestone, you’ll win a badge — a little digital fist bump to celebrate the quality time your brain and your books have been spending together. If the reading challenge you’re participating in has prizes, your reading in Beanstack will go towards the chance to win!
May I add more than one reader to my account?
Of course. You can set up as many profiles as you like, for readers of any age. And if you’re a parent who reads aloud to more than one kid at a time, you can credit that reading time to multiple children’s accounts with a single click — no need to log it in separately for each of your avid listeners.
