Summer Reading Sign-up Starts Today!
The Bartlesville Public Library is pleased to announce the 2022 Summer Reading Program! From June 6 – July 31, there will be reading challenges, activities and events for all ages, from birth to adults.
Beginning on May 9th, register for the program by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app on any mobile device or go to the website at bartlesville.beanstack.org/reader365. “If you already have a Beanstack account from another BPL Beanstack program, there is no need to create a new one. Just sign in with your username/password and register for “Oceans of Possibilities,” says Youth Services Librarian Laura Pryce. “This is where you will log weekly reading and activities, enter prize drawings and see the schedule of weekly events for children and teens.”
Events will also be posted on BPL’s website, social media and electronic signs. “We have a really great line-up this year,” says Pryce. Events for kids include comedy, magical and musical performances as well as live insects, touch-the-trucks and fun with balloons. Weekly storytime and take-home crafts will be offered for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, as they are year-round. For teens, BPL is offering painting, cooking and craft classes, along with a forensics workshop, a gaming truck and a sushi-making class! Summer Reading Program participants of all ages will be invited to attend the Grand Finale Pool Party at Frontier Pool on July 31.
Using Beanstack to log in reading each week and complete weekly activity challenges, participants will earn fun virtual badges and virtual tickets that may entered into prize drawings. There will be three grand prize drawings for each age category at the end of the program.
The Summer Reading Program is absolutely free and open to everyone! Call 918-338-4170 for more information.
