All Together Now - Summer Reading Fun at the Library!

June 12 - August 4, 2023

Summer reading is a fun program designed to engage all age groups in exploring new ideas, books, and activities. This program is free and there are no fees for any of the events or activities.  As you read books and engage in the activities, you are eligible to win badges and a book to keep. The best way to track your progress is through the Beanstack app or web site.  Beginning June 12, 2023, you can start recording your reading time and participate in the activities, located in Beanstack.

How do I Start?

To get the most out of your summer reading experience, we recommend that you create a Beanstack account.  Parents can also create accounts for their children.  In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter the books you have read, write book reviews and more.  As you progress you will earn badges and earn books to keep. To register, visit the Beanstack website or login through the app. (Forms will be available at the Library for those who prefer to record their reading on paper.) Any prizes earned must be picked up in person at 130 N. Bridge Street, Manawa WI.

Beanstack app available for iOS and Android.

Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age.  There are four age groups: 0-6, 7-11, 12-17 and 18+. If you wish to be contacted about prizes and drawings, please include an email address or telephone number as part of your Beanstack profile.
