Maybe you have heard of it or maybe you haven’t. Regardless, if you love a good reading challenge, Beanstack is the best application that you can access through Schreiner Memorial Library and Potosi Branch. You can earn badges, track time that you have spent reading, leave book reviews for other patrons to read, fight to get to the top of the leaderboard and most importantly, to have a great time!

Here are some videos explaining how to use Beanstack, both on a computer and on the go.

We realize that not everyone is a fan of technology but still would love to participate in our summer reading program. You still can! You can give your details to a library staff member and they can enter you into the system, which will still make you eligible for the same prizes as though participating through the app. We want everyone to enjoy summer (and other reading challenges) reading in a way that feels the most comfortable to them.

Any other questions? Feel free to call/email/visit us at either library and we are willing and able to help you out with any of your Beanstack needs.

Happy reading to all and may the best reader win!
