This year we are using Beanstack for our summer reading! Beanstack is available online or as an app for iOs or Andriod. Go to shawanolibrary.beanstack.org to register. (If your whole family participates in the summer reading programs, your parent can register your family and create a reader account for you.)
This year for the teen summer reading program (ages 12-18), we will be tracking reading minutes instead of books. There will be badges available for 1, 3, 5*, 10, 15, 20*, 25, 30, and 35* hours of reading. You will earn "tickets" at each level that can be entered into final prize drawings for gift cards ($50 Amazon, $50 Kwik Trip, $50 Duhnam's Sports, $50 Walmart, and $0 Maurice's) or a prize package of a 3D pen with some accessories or Pilot Frixion Pens and Rocket Reusable Notebook. The number of "tickets" you earn increases as you read more, giving you more chances to win the final prizes. The hour levels with * earn bonus prizes! At 5 hours you will receive a Seroogy's candy bar, at 20 hours a $10 Culver's Gift Card, and 35 hours a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card. (*These are not drawings! You reach the level - you get these rewards!)
There are also nine activity badges you can earn! For each badge you will have to complete 5 of the activities listed to earn the badge. For each badge you earn, you will receive 2 tickets for the final prize drawings.
If you do not have online or app access to Beanstack, you can still participate in the teen summer program on paper. The reading program logs and activity badge logs are below.

KITS! There are kits available for teens to use while in the library. You can ask at the Returns desk to sign out a kit, do the activity, then return the kit to Returns. They must be kept in the library, but you don't need a card to check them out! They will vary from time to time. Current kits include:
Spirograph Straw Rockets Quilling
Zhuzh Your Planner
