Summer Reading Program for Children

Begin logging your library books and activites on June 22 until August 10!  To get started, create your account in Beanstack by visiting https://beamanlibrary.beanstack.org/reader365  and register for the Summer 2021: Tails and Tales for Kids challenge. There are descriptions of the prizes in Beanstack and you can divide up your virtual "tickets" any way you choose! Stop in the Library to get a bookmark and new books to read.

Throughout summer reading earn a paper chain slip for every book you read. While at the Library, you will staple the chain together. At the end of each week, we will connect the chains to make a dragon's tail. Do you think we can hang the tail from one wall of the Children's Room to the other?
