Welcome to Summer Reading!        Sign in to Beanstack HERE

This year we have a brand new platform for logging minutes, unlocking badges, and earning prizes.  It's called Beanstack, and you can watch an overview video to your right.  

Beanstack helps us streamline the summer reading process for everyone involved.  Adults, you'll make one account for yourself, and then have the option to add additional readers (ie. your kids) to that account for easy tracking. 

We have programs this year for everyone ages 3 and up (including teens an adults)!  No matter your age, record the minutes you spend reading (books, audiobooks, newspapers, magazines, or even bedtime stories).  The more you read, the more badges you unlock.  Some of those badges have prizes associated with them.  You can also unlock badges by attending events and writing reviews. Setting up your free account just takes a couple of minutes.  Adults, register yourselves first and then your children under your account as additional readers.

Further down on this page you'll find links to register, as well as special announcements for kids' events and activities.  

This program is free and open to all.  However, some prizes such as Cardinal Baseball Tickets, are restricted to O'Fallon Public Library cardholders.  Check kids, teens, and adult programs for details.

If you have any questions, stop in and see us or call 618-632-3783!  

Thanks and have a great summer!
