Summer Reading Club 2022: Oceans of Possibilities
CALS Summer Reading Club encourages reading and engagement in library activities for all ages. Online registration is available at cals.beanstack.org or through the Beanstack Tracker mobile app. Once registered, readers can get book recommendations, keep track of their reading through a log, and earn digital badges for reading, attending programs, and other activities. Digital badges earned will count as entries in our weekly prize drawings.
Everyone who registers can pick up a free book bag at our branches while supplies last. We will also be giving away Travelers baseball tickets for games on June 7 and August 2 to Summer Reading participants.
We are also excited that in-person events are making a comeback! We will be exploring our summer theme “Oceans of Possibilities” through special performances, crafts, and other programs. We will also continue to offer grab & go activity bags that can be picked up for an at-home craft or project.
