Kids Summer Reading Program 2021
How do I register my kids for the Summer Reading Program?
Summer Reading officially starts Monday, June 7, but you can pre-register via Beanstack, at lenawee.beanstack.org or through the free Beanstack app. We have a reading program for pre-k, kids, teens, and adults. Registering with Beanstack works the same way regardless of which program you or your family wishes to participate.
From the Beanstack landing page click REGISTER INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY and complete the form to create an account. Parents can create a family-style account by adding child readers when registering as well as after their account is active.The account creator is the person who will be logging information (typically the adult) throughout the summer. This person can also be a reader. You will be prompted to enter each reader into the appropriate challenge when creating their account.
If you prefer to participate in SRP only on paper, visit any of the Lenawee District Library branches to register. Please participate in only one method.
How does my child participate in Summer Reading Program once we are registered?
Participation is simple! When registering a reader, you will be prompted to enroll them in a challenge based on grade level. On Monday, June 7th readers can start logging time and activities.
PreReader program: Babies to PreK
If using Beanstack, complete all the activities in the five activity badges complete the challenge. There are twenty early literacy activities designed to create an engaging and educational summer. Completing all twenty activities earns a prize and an entry into the pre-k grand prize drawing.
If you are participating the traditional way, when you register your child they will receive a two-sided reading log. Completing both sides (twenty activities total) will earn a prize and an entry into the pre-k grand prize drawing.
