2021 Beanstack

Norwalk Summer Reading Lists

How does it work?

It’s simple, just register

Beanstack is where you will register for our Summer Reading program. Want to keep track on your phone? Beanstack has an app for both Apple and Android devices. The game begins 6/15 and ends on 8/31. Contact the Norwalk Public Library at 203-899-2780 x 15131 or email us at YouthServices@norwalkpl.org with any questions.

Using the app:

  • Download the app and open it
  • Hit “Get Started”
  • Click “Yup!”
  • Type in “Norwalk Public Library” then choose “Norwalk Public Library (CT).”
  • Now, you can either register for the very first time, or sign in if you’ve already made an account (this includes last summer's game).
  • Boom, you’re in! 

1. Complete a Level - get a badge (+ raffle ticket)

  • For each book you read (up to 10 books) you will earn an online badge and raffle ticket. Earn more if you hit some landmark numbers.

2. Complete Activities - get a badge (+ raffle ticket)

3. How do raffle tickets work?

  • You can choose where to drop your raffle tickets right on the site - there are 8 different raffle baskets to choose from!
  • Put them all in one basket or spread them out, it’s your choice!

4. Download and print (Spanish) the library map from home or come to the library to pick up a larger copy.
