This summer, join the San Bernardino County Library as we reward you for reading!


How does it work? Sign up for our Summer Reading Program: Excavate Something Big, check out books from the Library and read! Log your progress online on Beanstack, and take a trip to the Library to pick up your reward. Don’t forget to visit us weekly to pick up your program kits to enjoy at home. Kits are distributed weekly, beginning each Monday and are available on a first come, first serve basis.


Participating in this year’s summer program is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Register on Beanstack using your account or sign up for a new one, and decide if you will be logging books, pages, or minutes read.
  2. Check out books from the Library and READ! Log your progress online, on Beanstack, by entering the book title, number of pages or minutes read, depending on what you chose.
  3. Earn a reward badge each week by reading at least the weekly minimum and logging the books, pages or minutes read. Come into the library to collect your rewards throughout the summer.
