There will be weekly raffle prizes for those who read 60 minutes per week and a Grand Prize for one lucky winner in each age group who reads at least 960 minutes (16 hours) by the end of the 8-week program.

Program Dates: Friday, June 21 – Friday, August 16

End of Summer Carnival: Saturday, August 17

Though the SRP officially starts on June 21, you can register now on Beanstack and start logging on June 1! Those hours will count towards your overall total. Be sure to stop by the Library each week to confirm your reading time, pick up a raffle ticket, and choose a small prize.

How to Set Up Beanstack

1. Download Beanstack on your device using Google Play or the App Store.

2. Create an account if this is your first time using Beanstack. If you already have an account or have participated in the SRP (or 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten) in the past, skip to the next step.

3. You can create one log-on account for your family, but be sure to "Add a Reader" for each member of your family so everyone can log their own reading separately!

4. Once you log in, select "2024 Summer Reading Program" on your home page and register for the challenge. You should be all set.

*If you need any assistance registering or using Beanstack, please do not hesitate to come in or give us a call at (603) 664-9715. You can also access helpful Beanstack resources here.
