Last chance to log your books and minutes!

Saturday, August 3 is the last day to enter your books and minutes on our Beanstack app!

Those who have completed their reading goals should enter their drawing tickets by Friday, August 9.

Adults, remember to pick up your flashlight keychain finishing prize donated by the Friends of the Orland Park Public Library by Saturday, August 3.

Youth patrons will receive a ticket to participate in the End-of-the-Summer party on Saturday, August 10 as their finishing prize.

 

Our Summer Reading Challenge – It’s Showtime at Your Library begins Saturday, June 1 at 10 a.m. and ends Wednesday, July 31 at 9 p.m. Register in person or with our NEW Beanstack app.

No need for reading logs this year! Our Summer Reading Challenge will be tracked solely through Beanstack, which means you can log your books in the comfort of your own home. A badge will appear to let you know when you have earned a drawing ticket and can enter to win prizes at the library. Don’t have a device to use the Beanstack app? You can still check in with staff at any of the Reference Desks.
