Summer 2023: Find Your Voice!
Summer is here and Beaman Library has an exciting Summer Reading Program, Find Your Voice! planned for readers of all ages.
Summer Reading Program for Adults
Our annual Summer Reading Program for Adults will take place during the months of June, July, and August! Visit Beaman Library’s Beanstack page to register for the Summer 2023: Find Your Voice! for Adults Challenge. This year, adult readers will log the number of minutes read each day. If you read or listen to at least 100 minutes of content borrowed from Beaman Library this summer, you will be entered in an end-of-challenge prize drawing. And, the more minutes you read translates into more drawing entries. Prizes will include gift certificates to some of our local dining establishments.
Visit our Events for Adults page to learn about and register for the upcoming adult programming scheduled for this summer!
Summer Reading Program for Teens
The Summer Reading Program for Teens will take place between June 20 and August 18. Visit Beaman Library’s Beanstack page to register for the Summer 2023: Find Your Voice! for Teen Challenge. Once you are registered, you will be able to log your reading and receive notifications of prizes you have earned! For every 100 minutes read, a new Beanstack badge will be earned and readers can come in to claim a scratch off ticket that will reveal a small prize. Once teen readers have recorded 1,000 minutes, they will be entered in the grand prize drawing for a prize valued at $100!
In the meantime, visit the Events for Teens page to sign up for upcoming summer programs you are interested in attending!
Summer Reading Program for Kids
The annual Summer Reading Program for Kids will begin on June 20 and continue through August 8. Visit Beaman Library’s Beanstack page to create an account and register for the Summer 2023: Find Your Voice! for Kids Challenge as early as June 1. The Beanstack Challenge will go live on June 20 and any books read in the previous three weeks will count toward your summer reading tally. Readers can log each book borrowed and read from Beaman Library into Beanstack, as well as any summer programming attended, to earn prize tickets. Readers can use their tickets to enter raffles for the many prizes available.
Learn about and register for upcoming children’s programming by visiting the Events for Children page.
