Once again this summer, you can log the books and activities you’ve completed using a website called Beanstack! Beanstack can be accessed below or downloaded as an app to your device. This website allows users to log the books they’ve read, complete activities and challenges, and earn virtual badges and tickets for prize raffles. There will be a diverse group of gift cards prizes to choose from, so we encourage every member of the family to participate!
Registering for Beanstack
On our Beanstack Landing Page, this year in particular, you will need to create an account regardless if you already had an existing account. This is due to a change in the way Beanstack re-organized Allegheny County libraries for this summer.
After you create your account, you will see a list of summer reading program challenges from the participating libraries in the north of Allegheny County. You’ll choose Northern Tier Regional Library from that list.
On best practice recommendatoin is for parents and caregivers to register for an account and to put all of their children or the people they are responsible for under them. This way they can manage and control everyone’s account from one login to the system. The first person registering for a Beanstack account becomes the Account Creator and manager of the other accounts if any.
We hope you are ready to get stackin’ this summer! If you’re having trouble with Beanstack though, please contact the reference desk for help at 724-449-2665 ext. 25.
