Summer Reading Challenge

TEENS! We need your help!

The Brown County Library needs many teen volunteers to help run our Summer Reading Programs and to assist with our busy calendar of events and activities from June to August. Have a summer full of fun and create a positive impact in the lives of those in our community.

The Brown County Library Summer Reading Challenge is a fun program designed to engage and encourage readers of all ages! 
Track the days you read digitally through Beanstack or pick up a paper reading log at the library. Kids and teens can read to earn books and other prizes as reading milestones are reached. Completing fun activities will earn readers entries into drawings for VISA gift cards. Adults are able to earn tickets to enter a drawing for a variety of local adventure prize packs. 

The Summer Reading Challenge is powered by Beanstack. For the best experience, we recommend accessing Beanstack through a web browser to log your reading progress. browser

Note: While using Beanstack, the email/username and password refer to your Beanstack username and password– not the email/pin from your library account.

It’s simple to sign up and families or groups can register under one account: 
1. Go to https://browncountylibrary.beanstack.org
2. Create a Beanstack Account
3. Register for the Summer Reading Challenge
