How will Summer Reading work this year?
• Patrons are invited to track minutes spent reading all summer with a 500 minute goal and a
1,000 minute goal starting June 1st and ending August 31st.

Where can people access reading logs?
• Participants can track their reading using Beanstack. Beanstack is available as a website ( and as an app for iPhones and Android devices. Visit the KCLS Summer Reading Page to learn more.
• In addition to Beanstack, the reading log will be available as a downloadable pdf on the KCLS Summer Reading Page on June 1st. Downloadable finisher certificates and achievement badges will also be available for download.

What about prizes?
• When participants complete 500 minutes of reading on Beanstack, they will automatically
be entered into a drawing to win a stack of free books, curated for them by KCLS based on
their preferences. All participants will also receive virtual badges and a finisher certificate when they use Beanstack, and are able to download pdf versions of these as well.

If a participant prints and uses a downloadable pdf of the reading log or uses the reading log from the June issue of Parent Map, and completes 500 minutes of reading, there will be an online form on the Summer Reading Page to enter the drawing to win a stack of free books. Reminder, downloadable finisher certificates and achievement badges will also be available for download.

What types of programs will we have?
• KCLS will offer online programs and activities all summer on a variety of topics for all ages.
• KCLS has a new YouTube channel with “on-demand” programs & activities.
