Program Description

Event Details

The Youth Summer Reading Program is for children ages 3 to going into 6th grade. Those going into 6th grade have the option of staying with the youth program or moving up to the Teen Program.


Registration: June 7 – July 5

Two ways to participate: In person with paper log and stickers or online through Beanstack. The two programs are identical, it’s just that one is done with a paper log and stickers (in-person) and the other is completely online (Beanstack Program).

In person (paper log/stickers): Register in person, online (scroll to the bottom of this page) , or by phone (248) 969-9491. If you register online or by phone you must come in to pick up your materials by July 5.

How it works: Upon registering, you will be given a reading log and stickers. You will keep track of the days you read beginning on the day you register. For every day that you read (or someone reads to you) for at least 20 minutes, you put a sticker on your reading log. Each time you read 5 days, you will earn a reading coin. Save up your reading coins to buy books in our Story Room Bookstore where we have a large selection of books for all ages. Shopping will be available at the end of the program. It is your responsibility to keep track of your coins. We cannot replace lost coins.

Online (Beanstack Program): Register at or through the Beanstack Tracker app on your mobile device NOT on this page. You will log everything online through Beanstack.


We often take photographs during library events. Please let a staff member know if you would prefer we do not publish photos of your child.
