08 May Summer Reading Program 2023: All Together Now
Join the HEPL community of readers by enrolling in the All Together Now 2023 Summer Reading Program! Readers of all ages can keep an online log of their reading and complete fun activities during June and July to participate. Registration begins Monday, May 8th. Sign up by clicking the Beanstack button below.
How To Participate
Enroll in the All Together Now Summer Reading Program through your Beanstack account with HEPL. If you already have an account, you need only enroll. If you are new to Beanstack, take a minute to create an account for yourself and the readers in your household. Reading logged between June 1 and July 31, 2023 will count toward the summer reading program.
Once you have enrolled, start reading or exploring our activities to earn points! You can earn points by logging pages, minutes, or days read, writing reviews, and completing activities. Earn 100 points to complete the program. Continue reading to earn more points, badges, and automatic entries into an end-of-the-program prize drawing! It’s truly a choose-your-own-adventure style program.
In celebration of the Hamilton County Bicentennial, you can also take on an extra challenge! Visit all the libraries in Hamilton County to earn an entry into a prize drawing for a $100 gift card to Moonshot Games. Enter the challenge code “alltogethernow” in Beanstack or learn more here.
Read, Log, and Win Prizes!
Prizes for every age category are tied to points badges at 25, 50, 75 and 100 points. For Babies through Teens, participants will earn a FREE book when they reach the 50-point level, halfway through the program. Babies through Kids will earn a small prize and raffle ticket to deposit in a prize ballot box for every other point level. Teens will earn a small prize and an eRaffle ticket. Adults will earn an eRaffle ticket at every badge level and a dice and playing card set for completing the program.
Activity points are back again! Get more involved this summer by earning points to complete the program. Different activities will earn you different amounts of points. Some examples include attending a library program, donating school supplies, and participating in fun activities from home! Participants can click on activity badges in their age level program to learn more.
The grand finale prize drawings for each age group will be held at the end of the program, and winners will be notified by email. Participants have until August 7th to enter their age-specific raffles.
