Summer Reading Challenge 2023

The “All Together Now Summer Reading Challenge begins on June 3, 2023.  Visit the Lancaster County Libraries Summer Reading Information page HERE

Reading Challenge participants may register through the Beanstack app or be an “Off-line Reader” and use a paper log. If you use Beanstack, you may also have paper logs for your readers to fill out at home.

To register your child on Beanstack:

If you’ve participated this way before, you’re all set!  You will see this year’s challenges appear for your children on June 3, simply accept the challenges and come in to claim your Barnstormers voucher right away (awarded upon the start of the program).  Track your child’s progress in the app and you’ll be prompted to come in and redeem the prizes upon completion.

If you’re new to Beanstack, create an account CLICK HERE.  Select Strasburg Library when creating your account.  Your email contact will allow us to notify you how and when to redeem your child’s prizes!  Parents/caregivers are the account creators, and each child in the program is a reader.  If you want a bit of extra help, we’ve got handy bookmarks at the Library to guide you, or we can offer some personal assistance as needed.  Remember, the challenges go live on June 3, even if you open a Beanstack account today, you can not log your progress in the Summer Reading Challenge until June 3rd. 

This year the Beanstack platform will include the popular 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program!  If your young child is participating in both programs you can use the app to track them simultaneously!

To register your child using paper forms:

Simply come to the Self-Service desk and choose the correct reading level log for your child.  Please fill out the information on the clip board to register your readers and pick up your Barnstormers voucher.
