There are three ways to participate - pick which one is most convenient for you!

On the Beanstack Tracker app

Search for “Beanstack” in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and follow the instructions to create an account and track your progress.

On the web

In your browser, visit myjcpl.org/beanstack and follow the instructions to register. You can log back in to track your progress.

Need help? Our staff can help get you registered and track progress online or in the app.

In person / on paper

Just visit or call your library to register with a staff member. Pick up a paper tracking sheet at a branch or use the link below to print a tracking sheet at home in the next few days.

How to Earn Prizes:

Adults earn prizes by reading books (and ebooks and audiobooks) and by completing summer reading activities in Beanstack or on the printable activities list that will be available at your library, or on this page after June 1.

Log your progress in Beanstack or visit or call your local branch to report your progress!  Weekly drawings will be held and a grand prize drawing will be held at the end. 

Redeem prizes by visiting your local branch.

Important Dates:

You can track your activities and enter drawings between June 8 and July 31. Drawing winners will have additional time to redeem their drawing prizes.
