Summer Reading Online

Summer Reading 2023 - All Together Now

Programs for All Ages

JUNE 5 through JULY 29

Each year, from June through July, we host Summer Reading. Our online versions are identical to the in-person programs, and have the same goals and prizes. Most of our activities, including crafting, will be at the library.  However, the programs have some activities you can do at home.

The 2023 Summer Reading Theme is “All Together Now.” The opportunities are endless!

Did You Play Online Last Year?

You’ll need to register if you have never played the online version before.  The software is called Beanstack, and it’s pretty fun and easy to use! You can download an app and do the entire program through your phone or tablet.

If you did play online last year, all you need to do is sign in and pick the appropriate program for your age. Everything should be ready to go.

Program may not be repeated!  Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer.
NO PRIZES 
will be given after Saturday, JULY 29, 2023.

Prizes

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 3, and haven’t gotten any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 17 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until July 29, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER JULY 29

  • Weeks 1 & 2: June 5-17: Program sign-ups only; no prizes available yet

Beanstack Login

An easy place to keep all your family’s reading progress together! No More worries about lost paper logs!

You can add all your children and register them for their respective programs in one place. All programs can be accessed through the main Beanstack link. It’s an easy three step process:

  1. Register for a Beanstack Account. Search for “Madison Library District” to find our library. Then sign up as a reader.
  2. Add any additional readers to your account (any children you don’t want to have their own account.)
  3. Log reading and activities – and come get some fun prizes along the way!

Anyone with their own library card can register for a Beanstack account.  So teens and older children can keep track of their own logging and rewards.

For parents who want to keep everyone in one place, they would register, sign up as a reader, then add each child as an additional reader under the parent account.  Then the parent would have to do the updates for each child.

If you played online last year, all you’ll need to do is sign in, select the appropriate reader, and pick your program! 

The librarians at the Summer Reading Booth can also help with all this! Don’t hesitate to ask us if you’re confused.
