Teen Summer Reading Guidelines

  • This summer we are counting minutes.

  • Logging will be done online using Beanstack. You can download the “Beanstack Tracker” app on your phone.  This app is available in both the iTunes & Google Play stores.**

  • Books, books on CD, or eBooks need to be checked out from Sims Library, on or above your reading level.


  • There will be weekly prize drawings for anyone who logged at least 30 minutes the previous week.

    • For example, if you read and logged 5 minutes every day from June 3 - June 9, you would qualify for the drawing on June 11.

    • Paper logs must be turned in by Saturday (of the logging week). So if the drawing is on June 11th, the paper logs must be turned in by June 8.

    • There will be 7 weekly drawings. 

  • At the end of the contest, the top Teen reader (most minutes logged) will win a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

    • The top Teen reader will be announced at the end of July.

**Paper logs are available at the library.
