It's time for the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge. Explore new depths, visit uncharted locals, and discover hidden treasures by getting hooked on a book!

Complete the challenge by logging reading time, completing activities, and writing reviews. Each earned badge also offers a book reward and a ticket towards the grand prizes.

Pre-register online now. Paper logs will be available Monday, June 6.

Log your first reading hour to activate and redeem your registration package beginning Monday, June 13.

Patrons keeping paper logs will need to return to the library regularly to be eligible for weekly prizes.  Turn in your log by the end of business Saturday, August 13 to make sure all your reading counts toward prizes.

We hope to keep you reading all summer long, so pace yourself to be eligible for weekly prizes.

Beanstack Mobile App

Beanstack's mobile app allows you to enter book titles or scan ISBN barcodes to quickly add them to your Log, time reading sessions, and check off activities as you complete them.  Search for "Beanstack Tracker" in the App Store or Google Play to download and start tracking.

  • Keep track of each family member's reading logs, activities, and rewards on one account.
  • Log reading from home or on the go.
  • Write reviews of the books you've read
  • Connect with friends who also use the app.
