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. During the Summer Reading Club 2024, you'll earn a ticket for every 60 minutes read and tracked. These tickets can go towards a grand prize of your choice! 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! Starting June 10th, 2024, enter the code HMLSRC24. 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 ticket that can be put towards a grand prize of your choosing. You can also earn extra entries by completing activities within the challenge! Earn badges, add friends who also have Beanstack accounts, write book reviews, and find other challenges to enjoy in Beanstack!

Don't fancy using the app? Library staff can add your reading log to your account and add your tickets into the prize draw. You can track your minutes read using the TD Summer Reading Club booklet provided at the front desk or any other method you’d like. Visit us in person or contact us via phone or email and let us know how much you read so we can update your progress. Be sure to ask us to show you the prize options that you can put your hard earned tickets towards!
