Starting June 1, register online through our Beanstack Reading Program platform then pick up your Summer Reading Program Kit at any of our three Library locations. These kits will include a reading log and the first three prizes your child will win when they complete each reading level. You can also choose to register in person.

The goal of the Summer Reading Program is to read a little bit every day. Caregivers should help each child set their own daily reading goal. This could be reading for a set amount of time each day or reading a certain number of books, pages, or chapters.

Each day your child meets their reading goal, they can log their daily reading online and color in one of the sea creatures on their reading log. After they have finished each level of reading (12 days/12 sea creatures colored in), you can give them the corresponding level prize provided in their Summer Reading Program Kit.

Caregivers are responsible for distributing Level 1, 2, and 3 prizes. You must return to the Library to receive the Level 4 prize (a free book to keep!) and be entered into the grand prize drawing.

Level 4 prize books will be available for pick up starting Monday, July 17. 

Parents: If you would like to create a Family Account, please register yourself first and then register your children under your account.

How It Works:

  • Register for an account starting June 1. You may use the same account information from previous Summer Reading Programs, Winter Reading Programs, or 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.
  • Log in to your account to record your reading and participation starting June 1.
  • Pick up a Summer Reading Program Kit containing the first three prizes after registering. You can register online or at any three Naperville Public Library locations.
  • Caregivers are responsible for giving children prizes for completing each of the first three levels.
  • After completing the fourth level, visit your favorite Naperville Public Library location to collect your final prize, a free book to keep.
  • One sign-up per person.
