Frequently Asked Questions
I read really long books. What if I don’t have time to read 10 of them in two months?
That’s OK! You can read 2 books and do 8 activities. You just need a total of 10 badges to complete the Summer Reading Challenge.
Do I have to read library books to count for a challenge?
While we prefer that you read books from our library, any reading will count…even audiobooks!
I used the Beanstack App last year- do I need to create a new account?
No, you will use the same account from previous years. The app may ask you to update your information, then you will be able to enroll in any available challenges!
It’s May 30th- can I log my reading in the Beanstack App?
While you can track your reading anytime in the Beanstack App, it will only count towards a challenge after June 1st.
I don’t have internet at home or a smartphone. Do I HAVE to use the Beanstack App?
No, you can track your reading on a paper log sheet that can be picked up at any Rolling Hills Library branch. If you are tracking your reading on paper, please remember to bring the paper log sheet back into the library with you when you have completed the challenge! Staff will need to see it to give you your completion prize!
