Summer Reading for Kids

Track Your Reading

Kids (babies through grade 5) are invited to “Read Beyond the Beaten Path” with the Woburn Public Library! (Grades 6-12 can try the Teen Program).  This year we’re counting days instead of minutes. It’s simple. Did you read today? Then add it to your log! Your goal is to read at least a little bit every day this summer. The program runs from June 25 through August 13. Here’s how it works:

  • Create a Beanstack account here and enroll in WPL Children’s Summer Reading Challenge. You can also download the Beanstack app from the App Store or Google Play. Be sure to choose “School, Library, or Bookstore” when selecting an organization type and search for Woburn Public Library. Signing up through our site will ensure that Beanstack is free of charge.
  • Log each day that you read until August 13 and earn virtual badges along the way. Stop by the library each week to get your beads or a rubber ducky to track your progress.
    • Older kids will get to pick one bead per day on their reading log.
    • Babies and Toddlers will pick out one rubber ducky for each week of participation.
  • At the end of the summer, your beaded necklace or ducky collection will show exactly how much you’ve accomplished!

BONUS: Follow Tanner the Bull through Woburn to earn extra prizes! Learn more here.
