Summer Library Program

The Summer Library program has something for everyone. This program is for all ages!

Get Started

  • Kick-Off the 2023 Summer Library Program with a Barnyard Book Bash Wednesday, May 31 from 6-7:30 PM
  • Register via Beanstack to earn your free book
  • Summer program runs June 1 through July 31

How it works

  • Complete 18 literacy-related activities to earn badges in Beanstack or track your progress on a paper log to turn in completion slips.
  • Each badge or completion slip will enter your name into a drawing for a grand prize. Complete as many badges or completion slips as you like! The more literacy-activities you complete, the better your chances at winning a grand prize! 
  • All badges and completion slips must be earned and turned in by July 31.


  • All registered participants are invited to celebrate at the Summer Finale Pool Party at Cascade Falls Aquatic Center, Tuesday, Aug. 1 from 7:15-9:15 PM.
