Beanstack Reading Challenges

Beanstack is a great way to motivate and encourage students to read throughout the year with themed challenges for all ages. It can be accessed online or with the Beanstack Tracker app available on mobile devices. A library card number is not needed.

Kids, teens, and adults can log the minutes and books they read, keep track of their favorite titles and authors, earn digital badges and more. There are fun monthly challenges, like Women Changemakers and Spring into Reading, or ongoing ones, such as the 1,000 Books Reading Challenge, designed to get ready for kindergarten.

Questions? Check out the Beanstack FAQs.

Discover Pass

Spend your spring break at one of Washington's many captivating state parks or wildlife areas. Library card holders can check out a Discover Pass at their community library or place a hold online
