Eastern Shore Public Library

Summer Reading


Eastern Shore Public Libraries are excited to begin our summer reading program! This summer, we will be using Beanstack, an interactive online platform, which is perfect for the entire family. Beanstack is very user friendly! Sign up for Beanstack as an individual or as a family; record time spent reading, participate in challenges, and share book reviews. As you log your reading and activities, you will earn digital badges redeemable for cool incentives (NEW this summer is Read to Bead – earn your necklace and add beads all summer long!) Challenges end on August 15.

GET STARTED and earn your first prize at espl.beanstack.org

A big thanks to Cape Charles Memorial Library for hosting this first virtual Summer Reading library event for our Eastern Shore community! The number of participants is limited so pre-register soon and join the fun! We will consider adding a second “showing” if we have to create a waiting list. By the way, attending (or watching the recorded show) earns Reading Challenge points and a badge.
