Share Your Progress & Collect Your Prizes!

Our community goal this summer is 500,000 minutes. You can see the community progress on your Beanstack login page. When you read and help us get closer to our goal, share it on social media with the tag #ACCLhalfmillionminutes. We're on Facebook and Instagram!

When the Library has re-opened, you can come in to collect your summer reading prizes! We'll check your Beanstack logs and put together all of the prizes you've earned during the challenge.

Grand prize winners will be notified via phone or email at the end of the program on August 3rd.

Have fun and thanks for reading with us!
