How It Works:

The Summer Reading Program encourages children, teens, and adults to read for pleasure and learning throughout the summer. Participants log their minutes online at https://towerbarrackslibrary.beanstack.org/reader365 and receive virtual badges for achieving reading milestones. Some badges also have a prize attached to them.

When prizes are awarded, the participant will receive a message on the webpage as well as an email. Prizes can be picked up at the library within one week from when the prize is earned and while supplies last.

The library reserves the right to substitute prizes if the original prize is no longer available. There will be a special drawing for attendees at the closing party on Monday, August 5.

To start logging your reading minutes, create a summer reading account at https://towerbarrackslibrary.beanstack.org/reader365 or get the Beanstack Tracker app in your App Store. Adults and teens can register and earn prizes too.

Minutes count starting 24 June!
