The Summer Reading Program at the Southwest Georgia Regional Library has begun! The program is for all ages including adults, and our library will be doing reading logs online through Beanstack. You can register now on the Beanstack app on your device or on the website at swgrl.beanstack.org. For each log you complete, you get a prize and an entry for the final prize drawing. All reading logs are due no later than July 10.
Using the Beanstack App:
Download the Beanstack app on your device. When it says “Does your School, Library, or Bookstore already use Beanstack,” click “Yup!” Register for our Summer Reading Program by searching "Southwest Georgia Regional Library." On the “Sign In” page, click on “Don’t have an account? Sign up” at the bottom of the page. Fill out the registration information.
Using the Beanstack Website:
Go to swgrl.beanstack.org. Click on “Register an Individual or Family.” Fill out the registration information.
How Beanstack Works:
After you create an account on Beanstack, add all of the readers in your family of all ages. Then register the readers for the appropriate challenge. Register child readers for the "Children Summer Reading Program Log" challenge and register adult readers for "Adult Summer Reading Program Reading Log" challenge.
Log your books or reading time by clicking on "Log Reading and Activities." For every 12.5 hours a child reads or 5 books an adult reads, you will receive a badge and certificate. When the library reopens to the public, come claim your prize for each completed log. Contact us at email@example.com for help.
While the Library is Closed:
Your library card still gives you access to free e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines at swgrl.org/ebooks. If you do not have a library card, we can issue you a temporary digital card. To register for a card, go to gapines.org/eg/opac/register. On the Home Library section, scroll down to Southwest Georgia Regional Library and select the Decatur County Library, Miller County Library, or the Seminole County Library. Fill out the rest of the boxes and click Submit Registration at the bottom of the page. Please include your email and phone number on the registration so that we can contact you with your library card number.
