Reading can be logged on the free Beanstack Tracker App, on bclstx.beanstack.org or request a paper reading log at your branch. If you would like to print yours at home, use these links: Children’s Reading Log, Teen Reading Log, Adult Reading Log.
Teens, would you like more chances to win a branch prize? You will get an extra “Branch Prize Ticket” for every teen program you attend! Each branch has at least 1 teen program every month, and some have more, so Attend for a Chance to Win! Adults have extra chances to win branch prizes, too! For every adult program, whether virtual or in person, that is attended, adults will earn additional branch prize tickets.
