Summer Reading 2018

The Tyler Public Library Summer Reading Program is for Adults too!

Adults will be entered to win a prize for reading eight books from the adult or young adult collections. This year we have partnered with Beanstack to make logging reading time easier.  

Registration on Beanstack is live now, and reporting of reading begins June 4th.  

Visit and select the Summer Reading Club banner to register for an online account. After you register, you can download the Beanstack mobile app, which is available for Android and Apple devices. The app will allow you to scan the barcode of the book you are reading for faster, easier logging. You can also log reading time for your family too.  Summer is a great time to get some reading done, and it’s also an opportunity to promote and encourage reading to children and young adults.

Don’t have a computer or a smart phone with internet access? No problem! You can log your reading time using the Library’s computers or Wi-Fi.

For more details please visit the Library’s Information Desk.
