TWEENS & TEENS (Ages 12-18)

Download the Beanstack app or visit: newburyportpl.beanstack.org to create an account.

This summer, go on an adventure in a great book! Log the minutes you read to earn badges and points.

What can you read? Anything! Just track the time you spend reading (or being read to, or listening!). Tracking your reading time or achieving activity badges earns you tickets, which you can then use to earn prizes.

We will have two drawings this summer, one midway through the summer reading program and one at the end, however you can choose to enter your tickets for the two grand prizes all summer long. Grand prizes will be drawn at the end of the summer.

THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, JULY 4TH IN HONOR OF INDEPENDENCE DAY. REGULAR HOURS RESUME AT 9:00 AM, TUESDAY, JULY 5TH.
