June 7 – August 7, 2021

Explore the animal kingdom this summer as Sewickley Public Library presents “Tails and Tales” – our summer reading program for 2021!

Babies, toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy our Animal Friends Reading Together program for young listeners and emerging readers. And our Wild Readers program is perfect for children reading on their own up through entering 5th grade this fall.

Log your time spent reading during this 8-week program to have a chance to win great prizes and incentives! The more you log, the more chances you have to win. You will also be eligible to win one of our grand prizes at the end of the program.

We’ve got activities, crafts and programs to keep the fun going all summer long. Just read, log, & repeat!


How to Get Started

View all your account details in one place and log at your own pace with our online program Beanstack. Choose to create an individual or family account – whichever works for you!

How to Log Reads

Once you’ve signed up, return to the Beanstack page or use the Beanstack app to log your reads between June 7 – August 7, 2021.
