The idea is simple, the rewards are priceless!

Help your child prepare for one of life's biggest milestones:


For children birth through 5 years old, not yet in kindergarten.

The goal is to read 1000 books before your little one enters Kindergarten

(YES you can repeat books!)

Sign up using our Beanstack app, log your books, and earn prizes along the way! We appreciate our caregivers and know this program would be nothing without them, so for every 100 books your child reads, the caregiver also earns a drawing ticket.

Yes, caregivers could win a prize as well! Caregiver drawing tickets are entered into a quarterly drawing for a $10 Panera gift card!


Why should you participate?


  • Develop your child's love of reading at a young age
  • Bond with your child as you read together
  • Get your child ready to read
  • Teach your child about the Library and the joys of books
