Welcome to HNPL's 2020 (entirely digital) Summer Reading Challenge--Imagine Your Story. Our new online/mobile Summer Reading platform, Beanstack, allows you to easily track your (and your family’s) reading minutes and the titles you’ve read. You may post book reviews, too!


In a Nutshell
1. Starting May 28, sign up on your mobile device or computer. Download the Beanstack Tracker App or go to hnpl.beanstack.org. The Beanstack Tracker App can be downloaded from either the iTunes Store or the Google Play Store. The app is built specifically for mobile phones.


2. Log your reading, collect your digital reading badges, and earn tickets to use in prize drawings. (Audiobooks count, too!) 


3. To be eligible to win prizes, all adults must have an HNPL card, while all minors, or their parent, must have an HNPL card. Enter digital prize drawings no later than July 15.
