Get Ready! You can sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge starting June 1st!

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Council Bluffs Public Library challenges kids and teens from 0-18 to make reading and other literacy and library-related activities a part of your summer. Track the activities you complete or the books you read, earn badges, and win a prize!

Getting Started

Starting June 1st, (we’ll post the link on June 1st!) sign up online or through the Beanstack Mobile App, available through the iTunes Store or Google Play  Once you have registered, stop by the service desk in the Library’s Youth Department or Teen Central to pick up a yard sign (while supplies last).

Using Beanstack will allow you to:

    • Keep track of each family member’s activities and rewards from one account
    • Log reading and activities from home or on the go
    • Read and write book reviews
    • Explore book lists and create a “wish list” of things you’d like to read in the future
