Summer Reading 2020


We are moving our summer reading program online this year with a customized Beanstack platform for the Hamilton-Wenham community – all ages invited! It will have many of same features you are used to with our paper-based summer reading program. There will be three summer program tracks for children, teens, and adults, and readers will be able to sign up individually or keep track of all family members’ reading progress and rewards with the same account. Log your reading from home or on the go: Beanstack is browser-based but very mobile-friendly (you may have seen the creators of Beanstack in their successful appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank, six years ago).

We hope you will join us this summer as we go on a summer reading journey filled with fun activities and reading challenges, and the opportunity to win badges for local prizes. We’ve already got a 500,000-minutes reading challenge goal set in partnership with the Boston Bruins and First Lady of the Commonwealth Lauren Baker. Our summer Beanstack will launch June 20th and end August 8th.
