June 15 – August 10, 2024

Why should kids have all the fun? By reading, adults can keep their brains sharp, lower their stress levels, and be entered to win prizes too!

(available June 15th)

Start by downloading the free Beanstack app and using it to log reading time. On Beanstack you can also tackle challenges and create book reviews. You will be entered to win prizes such as our reader’s basket full of booklover gifts, $25 gift cards, and passes to Longwood Gardens. In addition, visit the reference desk at the Norristown Public Library to complete puzzles for mini-prizes and chances on a small raffle basket. Earn extra chances by attending special events at the library.

Note: Beanstack will be available starting June 15th.
