Summer Reading - Teen



Once upon a time, your favorite library had declared a summer-long reading challenge with the hope of awarding magical prizes to the forest's adventuring teenagers . . .

All teens entering grades 6-12 are invited to participate. 
You don't need a library card to get started on Beanstack, but you might need to use a valid North Haven library card to complete some of the challenge activities from home. If you don't have one, bring a parent or guardian and stop by the Circulation Desk. If you don't live in North Haven, come by the library and complete those activities here!


  • Teens entering grades 6-12 can register through the North Haven Memorial Library's interactive reading platform called Beanstack*! Download the Beanstack Tracker app through your favorite app store, or participate online by visiting

  • Once you create an account, find the "Teen Summer Reading 2024" and click "Join Challenge."

  • After that, you're ready to go! If you have questions, any staff member at the library would be happy to help you.


*Teens who would prefer to participate on paper are welcome to pick up a paper bingo card at the Information Desk.


  1. Complete activities on your bingo card to unlock special badges. With each badge you unlock, you'll earn a raffle ticket. Some badges will award you a ticket AND an extra prize from our Teen Prize Cart.
  2. Unlock 5 badges in a row to earn the BINGO badge.
  3. Don't stop there. Your goal is to complete every activity on the bingo card to unlock the FULL CARD badge. If you unlock this badge, you'll earn five extra raffle tickets.
  4. Finally, visit the Information Desk on the 1st Floor of our library to cash in on your tickets and rewards.
This year we're giving away two echo dots, an echo studio, a kindle fire, a firestick,
and five different $25 gift cards. Our grand prize winners will be chosen starting July 29!

FAQ :)


Do I have to read for a certain amount of time?

Not this year! Our goal this year is to get you reading/watching/listening/checking out all the awesome items the library has to offer. 

Do I have to read every day?

You do not have to read every day. Although, we think it is a great idea if you do!

Do I have to read books?

Yes! Unless the BINGO sheet says otherwise. We hope that you will familiarize yourself with our library's collections.

How often should I come to the library for Summer Reading?

Come to the library every time Beanstack says you've earned a reward. Visit the Information Desk to cash in on your tickets and prizes.

Can I participate in the Teen Summer Scavenger Hunt without participating in this challenge?

Absolutely! Visit the Information Desk for a scavenger hunt sheet.
