Summer Reading Resources

Over the summer, I encourage you to continue to read with your children. Set aside at least 15-25 minutes each day for reading. The Hastings Public Library is a great place to check out new and different books. They also offer several free activities throughout the summer that can help foster a love of reading in your child. You can help set your child up for success in August by reading over the summer months.  -Kayla Perry, Longfellow Reading Specialist

2024's Summer Reading Challenge is Coming!


Check out the Calendar and the Sumer Reading Events Summary for all of the Events coming in June and July
Many fun events are planned including the Feller Express Dinosaur Encounter, Adventures with Reptiles, retro video games, a scavenger hunt, and more.


All reading challenges are tracked through our online portal hosted by Beanstack.
Here everyone can track reading, and activities completed and enter prize drawings. Parents, you can manage all readers' logs in one place and log family reading time in one entry.
 
Teens and other adults can create and manage accounts too!
THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE:
Register you and your children on Beanstack (see video help below).
If you created a Beanstack account for an earlier reading program you still need to sign in and enroll in the Summer Reading program.
Log Reading & Activities online or with the companion app (see video help below).
Earn badges and rewards, plus enter for prize drawings.
There is also an app for iOS and Android to track progress wherever you are.
Go to your app store to download. Click the buttons below or search for Beanstack in your store.
