Winter Reading Club
Welcome to Winter Reading Club!
Winter Reading Club will run from 12/1-2/28.
There are two ways to participate in Winter Reading Club: you can sign up and track your reading through Beanstack (either online or through the Beanstack app) or you can use a paper log (we'll have copies available at the Library as well).
How do I sign up for Beanstack?
If you’ve used Beanstack before, just log into the website or app using your old credentials.
If you’re new and signing up through the website, just click “Register an Individual or Family” and follow the prompts.
If you’re new and registering through the app, tap Yes on the home screen, and then search for the Lake Bluff Library. Tap Sign Up on the login screen and follow the prompts.
Once you’re logged in, you can register you and your family for the 2021 Winter Reading Challenge!
Reading Lists and Resources
We have put together a big list of reading suggestions and other resources to help you complete the challenge.
