What is Beanstack?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have added a online reading and activity tracking platform called Beanstack. You can use a computer, smartphone, or tablet to log reading and activities. Beanstack Tracker App is available in the App Store and Google Play Store. 

Your Beanstack account will carry over to next summer and other reading programs. You can have multiple family members on one account.
