Adventure Begins at Your Library!

June 3 — July 26

What is Beanstack?

Summer Reading is going online! But, you can still pick up a postcard at any OCPL branch!

Beanstack is a digital platform where participants log their reading and join challenges designed by library staff. There are activities for all ages, babies to adults. Registration is quick and simple, and caregivers can register all of their children in one place. Beanstack allows you to log your reading and activities, at home and on the go using the Beanstack Tracker app.

As patrons log their reading and activities, they will earn digital badges. Beanstack will automatically keep track of how many badges are earned. If you would prefer the tried-and-true paper method of logging, you can also pick up a postcard at any OCPL branch: Walhalla, Seneca, Salem, Westminster, or the Bookmobile!


How It Works

We're challenging every participant to read (or be read to) for at least 600 minutes.  Return your completed reading log to the library for an entry into our prize drawings.  Participants who complete the reading challenge will also receive a medal (if under 18), free pizza (if under 18), a ticket voucher for a Greenville Drive game, and a prize from the treasure chest (under 11). If you want to complete more than one reading log, GO FOR IT!  Every completed log = 1 grand prize entry.

We have prizes for four age groups:

  • ​Emergent Readers - Ages 0-5
  • ​Independent Readers - Ages 6-11
  • Teen Readers - Ages 12-18
  • Adults - Ages 18+

All reading logs are due by July 26th if you want to be entered into the prize drawings!

The Beanstack app is your digital reading log!  But if you would rather use a paper log, you can pick them up at any OCPL branch.

When you complete 600 minutes of reading, stop by any OCPL branch for your medal (if under 18), pizza coupon (if under 18), Greenville Drive ticket voucher, and prize from the treasure chest (under 11).
