Summer Reading Program

How to Participate

Registration opens June 2, 2023! To complete the program, just read three books. Want to keep reading? Go for it! The more books you read, the more entries you will receive for our fun end of the summer prize drawings.

To register visit our Beanstack website or download the app on your smart device. Beanstack is the same platform we use for our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, Winter Reading Programs, and last year's Summer Reading Program --- and is easy to use. Only one login is required per family.

If you'd prefer a paper log you can pick one up at your favorite RCPL location.

STEAM Powered Summer


Each age group will earn prizes for completing the program! 

At the end of the summer, each library location will offer a drawing to all participants that complete the program. We will have a library branch gift basket per age group and a grand prize for each age group for the entire Roanoke County Public Library system. Please note that prizes may vary.
