The Summer Library Program at WBPL is a fun program designed to engage all age groups in exploring new ideas, books, and activities. As you read books and engage in the activities, you will collect badges and earn points to turn in at the end of the program for PRIZES! You might even get some special instant rewards along the way! The best way to track your progress is through the Beanstack app or website. Beginning June 1, 2020, you can start recording your reading time and participate in the activities, located in Beanstack. If you are unable to participate online, please contact the library for alternative options.
How do I Start?
To get the most out of your summer reading experience, we recommend that you create a Beanstack account. Parents can also create accounts for their children. In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter the books you have read, write book reviews, and more. When you log your reading and activities, you will collect points to turn in for prizes as you at the end of the summer. To register, visit the Beanstack website or login through the app.
Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age. There are three age groups: kids, teens, and adults. If you wish to be contacted about prizes and drawings, please include an email address or telephone number as part of your Beanstack profile.
The Beanstack app is available for iOS and Android, although we strongly suggest using the mobile site, as the interface is exactly like the online version! Just go to wbpl.beanstack.org on your phone or tablet’s browser. Click here for a quick “getting started with Beanstack” tutorial! Or you can view a pdf with step-by-step instructions.
Take Home Bag and Prize Pickup
During the months of June and July, to-go activity bags for all ages will be available in the library’s entry. We will have a variety of crafts and fun things to do, and of course, they are FREE!
Prizes earned in June can be picked up from July 1-7; prizes for July may be picked up August 1-7, along with Grand Prize Drawings. Please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to schedule an alternate time for prize pickup.
