Tracking with Beanstack
The library is using the Beanstack app to help families track reading on a mobile device. Beanstack allows parents and kids to log reading from a computer OR a mobile device. You can download their FREE app called Beanstack Tracker for your iOS or Android phone or tablet. 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. If you need assistance downloading or using this app, please email the Teen Librarian.
Woburn Public School students are encouraged to read throughout the summer. While there are no required texts, the WPS English Language Arts Department has provided lists of suggested titles for students looking for recommendations. Students are welcome to read other genres, series, and authors of their choosing. The main thing: READ!
Middle School Suggested Titles
The Woburn Public Library is holding copies of all of the WPS suggested titles in the Teen Room. These titles can only be checked out for 2 weeks, with no renewals. Only Woburn residents may reserve holds on them.
“Read Beyond the Beaten Path,” iRead, and the Massachusetts Statewide Summer Library Program is funded by the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
