Beanstack is a digital way to track your reading and participate in reading challenges on your mobile phone or computer! You will be tracking minutes read in the app. For every 60 minutes read, you'll gain one entry into the weekly prize. The more you read, the more chances you have to win! 

1. Sign Up! Download the app or visit (If using the app, choose "participate through a library" and find our site "Yellowhead Regional Library.") A Beanstack account is like a car; you have a driver and passengers all in one vehicle, meaning you only have to make one account for the whole family! Make sure a parent makes an account so they can participate too! 

2. Find Our Challenge! Enter the code you saw on the confirmation page of our website (or the code given on the brochure you received at the library.) This will lead you to the Hinton Municipal Library's Summer Challenge! Don't forget the Summer Reading Club challenge is for all ages! Anyone age 0-109 can join in on the summer fun!

3. Track your Reading! Our Summer Reading Challenge is based on reading time. For every hour read, you will earn an entry towards the weekly prize. You can also earn extra entries by completing activities within the challenge or coming to programs at the library! Earn badges, add friends who also have Beanstack accounts, write book reviews, and find other challenges to enjoy in Beanstack!
