Welcome to Summer at the Virginia Public Library!

The library has created summer reading programs for everyone this summer! Library visitors from infants to adults can join in on our reading programs, earn awesome prizes, solve clues for challenges, and attend outdoor events this summer! Here are some ways you can enjoy your summer with the library:

1. Participate in summer reading by picking up your summer reading booklet at the library!

These paper guides to summer reading include reading program tracking, summer events by month and location, bonus challenges, and information about summer prizes. Programs are presented for three groups: Infants – 6th Grade, Teens (7th – 12th Grade), and Adults (18 years or older). You can pick up your booklet at the front desk of the library!

2. Participate in summer reading by using the online summer reading program Beanstack, or by using the Beanstack Tracker App.

You can sign up for online summer reading at home, on your computer or an internet connected device. To learn more about Beanstack, or for help with your Beanstack account, visit the library! To get started with Beanstack, click the link below:
