In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter your reading progress, write book reviews and more. You will receive prizes as you progress and be entered into drawings for different challenges all year long.

How it Works

To get the most out of your virtual reading experience, we recommend that you create a Beanstack account.  Parents can also create accounts for their children under one family username and password.  To register, visit the Beanstack website or download and login through the Beanstack Tracker app – search by Karl Junginger Memorial Library.

Beanstack app available for iOS and Android. Once you’ve registered on the app, tap on the picture of the reading challenge:

Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age.

*Note: For children with ages that could be between programs, two challenge options may be given. Once you select their reading challenge option they will need to stay with that program. Additionally, older teens can make the choice to join the adult reading programs at times, but adults should ONLY participate in the adult reading program.

There are a possibility of four age group challenges used throughout the year with their own reading requirements:

  • Early Literacy (preschool and younger)
  • Juvenile (ages 6 – 11 / school age independent readers)
  • Teens (ages 12 – 18)
  • Adults (ages 19 and older)

In order to be contacted about prizes and drawings, an email address or telephone number will be necessary as part of your Beanstack profile.

*Note: For those that don’t have internet access, a paper form of the reading challenges can be provided.
