2020 Summer Reading Program
DIG DEEPER: Read, Investigate, Discover
for Children up through 6th grade
Our summer reading program is going to operate a little differently this year.
You can participate in the 2020 summer reading program two ways:
#1. You can sign up as an individual participant through 6th grade in one of two categories:
- Early Literacy up through age 5
- Children’s for ages 6 to 12
Sign up beginning on Tuesday, May 26th. Sign up at the BEANSTACK link at the top right of this page. An adult can register all family members under one account.
#2. Call the Berry Room at 459-1052, beginning on Tuesday, May 26th, if you do not have digital access. We will do a phone sign-up with you, and you can participate using a paper reading log.
The paper reading log is included in the SRP Take Home Bag. If you are signing up for the summer reading program between July 1 and July 23, please call the Berry Room at 459-1052 between 10 AM and 4 PM Monday through Friday, and arrange a time with the Berry Room staff member for pickup of a SRP Take Home Bag from the Noel Wien Library parking lot between 1-4 PM Monday through Friday.
Once you’ve signed up either online or by calling the Berry Room, start reading and participating in the online activities. After signing up with Beanstack, download the Beanstack Tracker app to make tracking your reading easier!
