Launching this year, the Summer Reading Program will be largely digital through our use of the Beanstack app. Due to the extraordinary circumstances of this summer, the entire Summer Reading Program has been converted to a digital format. For more information on the Library’s most recent Covid-19 information (closures, contactless pickup, cancellations, etc.) please click here.
Digital Summer Reading Challenges through Beanstack
Before any of the events of the last couple months, we had already decided to move our challenges for Youth and Adult Summer Reading to Beanstack. Beanstack encompasses the entirety of the SRP challenges: registration, logging, prize drawings, and badges. Find our Beanstack webpage here or, find the Beanstack Tracker app in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and search for "Papillion Public Library". Below you will also find a link to Beanstack as well as a document with information on Beanstack if you want to check that out before you start your reading challenge.
Registration through Beanstack starts May 25th! SRP starts June 1st and ends July 31st.
