Beanstack: A Way to Record Your Reading Adventures
Once again we’re offering the online Beanstack system, so that participants in our various challenges (Summer Reading, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, Winter Reading Challenge, etc.) can record their reading to earn virtual badges and share their reading with others.
How to Get Started
- To establish an account on Beanstack, follow this link http://nevinslibrary.beanstack.org. You only need to register once for an account, then the system remembers you from year to year.
- Register your whole family under one log-in/password — an adult caregiver creates the account and then adds each child who is participating.
Tweens can create an individual account and independently record their reading.
How to Access Beanstack
- On your computer (PC), just go to http://nevinslibrary.beanstack.org. You’ll probably want to bookmark it for easy access all summer.
- On your phone, use the free Beanstack Tracker App for your iPhone/iOS device or your Android device — you can log your minutes on the app, and it even has a timer! (Click on the appropriate picture below to go the Beanstack app in that app store.)
