Follow the steps below to register for our Summer Reading Challenge. You do not need a library card to register for Beanstack or the Summer Reading Challenge, but you do need to be a Williston or St. George resident.

Create an account on our Beanstack platform. Click “Register an Individual or Family.” You will be prompted with "I Am Registering Myself" or "I Am An Adult Registering a Child."  For families with children, choose "I Am An Adult Registering a Child".  Fill in the adult's information first, then add your child’s information.

Registration requires you to select a grade level, even if you are no longer in school. For adults, select "Adult" and for those young children not yet in school select "Babies and Toddlers," which will guide you to the correct challenge.
 
You may register multiple family members on one account—children and adults—once you are logged into Beanstack. To add readers, just click the arrow next to your name in the upper lefthand corner of the screen and then “Add a Reader.”

YOU CAN ONLY REGISTER AN EMAIL ADDRESS ONCE!
Although you won't be able to register another person using the same email address, you may add them as a reader on your account.
 
Step 2:  Register for Your Challenge

Just click on the Summer Reading Challenge you will be participating in. There are four separate challenges, one for each age/grade group:
