Galax-Carroll Regional Library


Registration for the Teen’s Summer Reading Program is now open!

Step 1: Register   

We have two registration options. This year we are using the platform Beanstack for online registration and to track your reading!

OPTION 1: To register online, visit our Beanstack website or download the app on your smart device.

  • Go to our Beanstack website:
  • Click on Register an Individual or Family in order to create an account.
  • Fill in your info! Beanstack allows families to be linked together, so all family members can be accessed with one login.
  • Then choose a Challenge that fits your age group. For kids choose the Summer 2024: CSLP Adventure Begins At Your Library (Teen’s) challenge. This challenge will help you log your minutes.
  • OR you can download the Beanstack Tracker app on your device’s app store.
    • After downloading, search for “Galax-Carroll Regional Library (VA),”
    • Click on our library and then create an account!

OPTION 2: To register in person, come by the Galax or Carroll County Public Library, pick up a registration slip in the Teen area and submit your registration form at the Circulation Desk.

Step 2: Track Your Reading

For Teens: fill out a Teen Reading Log (whether through Beanstack or paper format) for every 10 minutes you read (1 sticker (or badge) = 10 minutes).

  • Teens will count how many minutes they read or listen to books.
    • If a child reads to another child, the minutes may be counted for both children!
  • Either fill out a Teen Reading Log (in person paper format) for every 10 minutes you’ve read or through Beanstack. With Beanstack after you register for a Challenge, find where it says Log Reading, then submit how many minutes and what you’ve read!
  • Teens must read at least 500 minutes or more to receive a Prize Bag!
    • After you complete one reading log, keep reading and logging minutes in Beanstack or pick up another log at the library, Keep Reading!
  • Participate in Fun Free events for Teens all summer long!
  • We also have a fun free event going on in June, beginning June 10th-June 29th, called the Kindness Bingo!
    • Fill up to 5 spaces in a row, and you get to spin the prize wheel 1 time.  Fill out the whole sheet, and you get to spin the prize wheel 2 times! Bring your bingo sheet back by June 29th to spin the prize wheel!
  • ALL logs & minutes recorded through Beanstack MUST be turned in by 5:00 pm on Monday, July 29th.
  • Come pick up your PRIZE BAG for all of your AWESOME reading this Summer!  PRIZE BAGS may be picked up from August 5 – August 26!

Step 3: PRIZES!!

  • Teens who have read at least 500 minutes, and have turned in their log or recorded minutes through Beanstack by 5:00 pm on Monday, July 29th, will get an AWESOME PRIZE BAG!
  • PRIZE BAGS may be picked up from August 5 – August 26.
