Imagine Your Story Summer Reading 2020 for Children, Teens and Adults!

This summer, over 30 libraries across Allegheny County have collaborated together to present digital summer reading programs.The Baldwin Borough Public Library's annual summer reading program for children, teens and adults is one of the many ways the library works to create a community of readers and library users.  Through fun challenges, readers of any age can earn virtual badges and virtual raffle tickets to have chances to win end-of-summer gift cards!  Our summer reading program begins June 15 and runs through August 7.

There are several ways to register for Summer Reading:

  • Register, log reading, and earn badges and raffle tickets all online through Beanstack beginning Monday, June 15!
  • Register by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app in Google Play or Apple!
  • Register by calling our library 412-885-2255 beginning Monday, June 15!
  • You can also download a reading log for kids or for teens, then go online, download the app, or call us to register...all beginning June 15!

A huge thank you to the Kiwanis Club of Baldwin for their generous sponsorship of our 2020 Summer Reading Program.
