Summer Reading 2020

Welcome to APL’s Kids Summer Reading Program!

This year things will be very different as we can’t have you in the library just yet for safety reasons. We will be using a digital Summer reading program through a program called Beanstack. You can download the free Beanstack app on your devices to get started, or you can go to our Beanstack site at This site will allow you to register for summer reading from home, track your progress, and earn fun badges during the summer.

If you have any questions, please call the children’s room at 333-6640 ext. 3.

For those children who do not have regular access to a computer we have a paper log that can be requested from the library and picked up by a parent or guardian. There is also a link to the paper log at the bottom of this page.

Just like our past summer programs we will have a free gift book for kids who read or listen to books for at least 10 hours this summer. This summer, because of COVID-19, we are still deciding the best way to distribute the gift books to participants throughout the summer. Please check our website and Facebook pages to find out how to get your free book in August.

We miss you all and hope you can have some fun with our virtual program!
