Welcome to Beanstack, your new handy reading tool!
What is Beanstack?
Beanstack is an easier way to track your reading and participate in reading challenges! Many libraries use Beanstack to offer activities and prizes for readers and families throughout the year.
Why sign up for Beanstack?
Well, for one, because you can get a free “I love my library” Cornelius pin for signing up during the month of April!
If you want to participate in the library’s reading challenges, such as our summer and winter challenges, you will need Beanstack to track your reading and activities. (It’s very easy. We really think you’ll like it.)
When you sign up, you’ll get to practice how Beanstack works with the Growing Readers challenge, which goes until May 31, 2022. Log minutes, complete activities, and get ready for our summer reading challenge!
We also have the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge on Beanstack, so this will make tracking your little one’s progress much simpler. (When you sign up for your account, you will see the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge, too. Click “join” to get started. To read more about this reading milestone, visit our youth services page.)
Even when there are no ongoing challenges to partake in, you can still continue to use Beanstack to log what you’re reading.
How do I sign up for Beanstack?
Simply visit Reed Memorial Library’s Beanstack at this link: https://reedlibrary.beanstack.com
You will need to have an email address and answer a couple questions about yourself.
If you have young ones you would like to sign up, you can create your own account and add them to yours. This makes it easier to log minutes and track challenges as a group!
Currently, we have set up three iPad stations near the Public Services desk. While you’re visiting the library, you can use these iPads to sign up for a Beanstack account. If you need any help, please ask and we will be happy to assist you!
How many beans can a Beanstack stack?
The limit does not exist–there are oceans of possibilities!
