What is Beanstack?

Beanstack is a digital platform where participants log their reading and find activity challenges designed by staff.  There are activities for all ages, babies to adults. Registration is quick and simple and caregivers can register all their children in place. Beanstack allows you to log your reading and activities at home and on the go using the Beanstack Tracker app. (Look for the app in your respective devices app store and download it). 

If you or your child has already signed up for one of our previous challenges (Summer Reading 2020 (Imagine Your Story),  Winter Reading Challenge 2021, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, etc.) then you’ll have a Beanstack login and do not need to create a new account. 

To get started you login will be an email address and the password beanstack. Once that is created you may change your password to something more personal.

Members of a family can all be on the same account. All you have to do is change readers using the button at the top right  of your screen  with another family member showing.  Just click on that family members name to switch between registered family members.  This is done on the website and the app. 

You can use Beanstack anytime! Keep track of your reading year-round and join our challenges when they are available. We will have a variety of ongoing and time sensitive challenges available at different times throughout the year. 

As you log your reading and activities, you will earn digital badges. Beanstack automatically keeps track of how many badges are earned. 

Activities vary from challenge to challenge. In a challenge, simply click on a badge to read about the activity or steps needed to earn that badge. 

Register yourself or your family here!
