Youth Program

Summer Reading Youth

Summer Reading 2020 has gone virtual this year. Register here for our new Beanstack Summer Reading Challenge. You can start logging from June 12 to August 8. We have programs for babies through sixth graders, teens, and adults. Simply create an account, add readers, and click on the Activities tab to see the available activities. Each activity you complete will earn you one point. When you reach fifteen points, you will earn a free book. Reach thirty points to complete Summer Reading and earn thirty tickets to enter into the Grand Prize drawing.

Community Goal: Help us help others! For every activity you complete, we’ll donate a dime to Forgotten Harvest. We hope as a community to collectively complete 5,000 activities to raise $500 to help feed those in need.

For those of you who would still like a physical game card, printable Game Cards can be found here. The activities on the physical log match the activities on Beanstack. If you choose to use a physical game card, simply log your activities in Beanstack after you’ve completed them. 

Read to Me, Grades 1 to 3, Grades 4 to 6
