Beanstack Summer Reading Challenge: #SummerRead2023 #SRC2023 #ComeTogetherNow

Let's show America how much Suffolk reads by reading together and building up our community through books! 

Suffolk Public Library's annual Summer Reading Challenge runs from June 17th- August 13th, 2023. 

Register or log in to Beanstack to participate and track your books read. Paper logs and Bingo cards will be available for pickup at our North Suffolk and Morgan Memorial branches for those who do not wish to log electronically. Register your whole family! You can log the books you read your children and the books they read you! If you have a favorite for bedtime that you read every night or a story they just can't get enough of, you can log the same title multiple times. You can also log any stories you listen to at our library Storytimes! Each time you log it increases your chances to win!

Paper logs must be turned in by August 15th before locations close to be eligible.

We're asking our community to log 20,000 books read throughout the summer. That sounds like a huge number but we know that Suffolk loves to read and have always risen to the occasion for reading challenges. We can do this together so log every book you read! Click here for a printable flyer and reading log!


To participate in the Summer Reading Challenge all you have to do is log the titles of the books you read using Beanstack and earn badges. Each badge you earn is like a raffle ticket. You can also earn entries with our Beanstack Bingo challenges! Each square earned acts like a raffle ticket. There will be grand prizes announced in August. The more you read, the more chances you have to win! You can download or install the Beanstack app from your app store onto your phone. The app has a feature that let's you scan the barcode on each book to log the title in a snap! Click here for a printable reading log!


The Summer Reading Challenge wraps August 13th, so in late August we’ll hold our grand prize drawings and we are going big! The prizes are arranged by reader’s age. 

  • The Grand Prize is a Kindle Scribe!
