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.

It is never too early to start your little one on the road to reading! The 1000 books Before Kindergarten program encourages you to spend time sharing books with your little ones while building critical early literacy skills before he or she starts school. Earn badges along the way to the special completion prize. Start your child’s journey today. Simply register in Beanstack and enroll in “1000 books Before Kindergarten!”
