Reading Incentive Programs

Read for rewards! To encourage children to read all year long, we have a few different options for you.   

Raccoon Readers (
12 and under): 
  • Read or listen to books.
  • Independent Readers should read age-appropriate books that equal their reading level.
  • Report on the Raccoon Readers Reading Log obtained in the Children's Department, or online through Beanstack or the Beanstack app:
    • Reading Log: write the title and page numbers for each book on the log, and earn a coin for each book, or two coins for each book over 50 pages.
      • Use your coins to purchase an item out of our prize case, or ask to view our book cart where you can purchase books you can keep.
    • Beanstack site or app:  log your reading, complete activities, and submit book reviews to earn badges and unlock prizes all year long!
      • Mini Bookworms Reading Challenge (0-5)
      • Every Day Readers Book Challenge (5-12)
Keep an eye on the events calendar and website for Summer Reading programs!

*To be more Earth-friendly, over the next year, Raccoon Readers will be transitioning to online only.
