Reading Programs

Reading Inspires Lifelong Learning

We want to keep adults, teens, and kids engaged in reading throughout their life. We offer several reading programs designed to encourage reading and make it fun!

Our Summer and Winter Reading Programs allow families and readers of all ages to log and read books for prizes and badges. The Summer and Winter Reading Programs are through Beanstack, which is our free online service that offers book and activity logging, recommendations and book reviews.

Our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is on the move!  Effective May 1, our popular reading program will officially move over to our new online book discovery service – Beanstack!  For those already enrolled in the current program, it is important that you print any current reading logs before this date! Then beginning May 1, you can simply log on to Beanstack, enter the number of books (or titles) and continue reading!

Show us how much you love to read by participating in one of our programs!
