Beanstack Online Reading Challenge App

The Anadarko Community Library is excited to announce that our patrons now have access to Beanstack.

Beanstack allows us to offer multiple reading challenges for all ages, including reading list, bingo, Summer Reading Challenges, and more.

Challenges in Beanstack are based on tracking reading and/or activities and earning badges at certain milestones based on what a participant has read or done. Upon completing a milestone, the participant earns a badge that pops up on their screen. They may also see a reward, certificate, or ticket attached to that badge if the challenge has prizes associated.

Through Beanstack Go, readers can manage multiple family members’ reading logs, challenges, and achievements as individual readers under one account. Readers can also earn reading streaks, leave book reviews, and add other Beanstack Go users as friends to view their reading information and compete on leaderboards.
