Participants must log 36 reading or activity sessions to complete the program and earn the donation for their selected nonprofit. You can log reading or activities such as attending a library program, Summer Slate event, visiting a StoryWalk®, exploring an online library resource or going on a bike ride. 

This year, instead of receiving a T-shirt upon completion of the program, participants will select a local nonprofit as a required activity within Beanstack. At the end of the summer, $5 will be donated for each person who completes the Summer Reading Program to these nonprofits by the Summer Slate sponsors up to a total of $3,000.


Register and track progress online or in the Beanstack mobile app (see app tutorial below).

To encourage readers all across town to participate, North Liberty’s Neighborhood Ambassadors have teamed up for a SRP Neighborhood Challenge.

Indicate your neighborhood in Beanstack so ambassadors and library staff can include you in the participation leaderboard between neighborhood color zones, which will be posted each Monday on our Facebook page. At the end of the summer the neighborhoods within the leading color zone will earn a visit from an ice cream truck for complimentary treats.


The June and July YLAH kits have been curated to accommodate individuals and families. Let your creativity and imagination guide you, but we will also provide suggestions in each kit. Find out what will be included in each kit and register HERE.
