Beanstack is a digital way to participate in the 2024 Summer Reading Program. With Beanstack, you can track the minutes you read over the summer, log activities, and more. There are two ways to use Beanstack: with the free app or online at stmarylibrary.beanstack.org. Registration begins on May 1, 2024.

Participants can earn rewards by reading and logging minutes on Beanstack. The more you read, the greater chance you’ll have to win a grand prize!

All age programs are offered at each library branch, free to attend. From storytimes, crafts, and STEM activities, there’s something for everyone! For calendars listing events, performances, and activities, check your local library or online at stmaryparishlibrary.org.
