Summer Reading 2022: Off the Beaten Path


Your account for the library catalog (frequently called a BiblioCommons account) is not the same as a Beanstack account. You must sign up for a Beanstack account separately.

IMPORTANT: Please do not use a K-12 school email address when creating your (or your child's) Beanstack account. Schools often block emails from outside organizations, in which case the library would be unable to assist you with your account or notify you of challenge prizes you may win. You can provide a phone number if you prefer not to provide an email address.

Embark on new adventures by participating in CRRL’s 2022 Summer Reading Challenge! Read whatever you want all summer long.

Log reading and complete activity badges to be entered into random drawings for prizes every week, and use your earned points to purchase tickets for grand prizes.
