Beanstack is an app (web and handheld device) that helps libraries offer reading challenges. Thanks to the Vermont Department of Libraries for providing all libraries in Vermont with Beanstack! Beanstack is for readers of all ages.


How it works:

  • Add challenges of your choice. (Challenges change periodically. Check your Beanstack account for current challenges)
  • Start reading! Don’t forget to log your progress. Some challenges will let you earn badges for each hour or each book you read,  while others challenges will allow you to complete activities to earn badges.
  • Don’t wait until the summer! You can log your reading anytime, explore reading lists, and add book reviews.
