Getting Started with Beanstack

An individual library card is needed for each child you are registering.

  1. Visit your app store to download the Beanstack Tracker App to your smart phone or device, OR visit https://beinspired.beanstack.org/reader365 to use the browser version.
  2. Register yourself for an account. If more than one person in your household is registering for a summer reading club program (
    we have three age groups to choose from), create one account for the whole family and add multiple readers.
    (TIP: make sure you look for Milton Public Library, Ontario. We’re the one with the bee logo)
  3. Select your Summer Reading Club challenge, based on your age.

Logging Badges

  1. You’ll earn a badge for every 1-2 hours of reading logged…we challenge you to earn them all!
  2. Each time you earn a Logging Badge, you’ll receive tickets that you can use to enter into the prize draws…reach your reading goal, and we’ll send you even more tickets!
    The more you read, the more chances you have to win an awesome prize at the end of the summer.

Activity Badges

Want to earn extra tickets? Complete Activity Challenges by participating in some of the amazing programs we have to offer. You’ll have fun, and learn lots too!
At the end of the program you will receive a special code which you can use to unlock the appropriate badge(s)!
