The library continues to use the Summer Program software, Beanstack, to allow patrons to track their reading and completed activities, and earn badges and tickets. Patrons can then enter their tickets online to compete for awesome grand prizes in their age group. Visit blufftonpubliclibrary.beanstack.org or download the Beanstack app free from your app store. If you already have a Beanstack login, no need to register again - just find your age group’s Summer Challenge and start competing! The library also has paper logs for those wishing to participate in the Summer Program without internet access. To print a paper log visit blufftonpubliclibrary.org/summer-program
