Summer Reading Program 2020


‘Imagine Your Story’ with your friends at the Penn Area Library.  Join us as we embark on a journey filled with fantasy, adventure, and fun! Programming will begin on Monday, June 8 and run through Friday, July 31.

Where will reading take you? Get started by registering for your Summer Reading Program account on Beanstack. There is also an app available to download for Beanstack, so you can track everything right on your device. Track your reading progress online by logging books and earning badges. Each badge earns a ticket which can be used to enter into a prize drawing. The more badges you complete, the more tickets you earn. Trade in these badges for a chance to earn any of our amazing prizes!

This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story” and those enrolled in the Kid’s Reading Club and the Read to Me Club will find themselves lost in Storybook Forest. Who will they meet along their way? Each week the children will stumble upon a familiar face and will have the opportunity to earn Activity Badges!

Which reading club is right for my kids?

  • The Read to Me Club is perfect for kids who are not yet reading on their own. Children will earn a badge for every three picture books read!
  • The Kid’s Summer Reading Club is perfect for children who read independently. Every hour read will earn a badge!
  • The Teen Reading Club is great for teens on the go! Earn a badge for every book you read and every review you write!
