Get Started: Go to the Beanstack page on our website and log in to your account or create an account. Staff is available to help you create an account. Pick up your coupon for a FREE Cookie Company cookie!*

Get Going: Log the time you spend reading or listening to books — even school assignments! For each hour you earn one ticket you can put into a raffle for one of the $50.00 prize packages. You have all of October and November to log your reading time. You’ll need to read 10 hours to complete the program.

Each package is worth $50.00:

All drawings will be done the first week in December and the winners will be contacted by phone or email.
