Summer Reading Club 2023 at Washington County Free Library

Washington County Free Library welcomes readers of all ages in Washington County to join in the Summer Reading Club from June 1 to August 31.

This free annual self-paced reading challenge is a fantastic way to keep booklovers reading throughout the summer months and meet new friends at library programs. This year’s theme, All Together Now, is a celebration of friendship, kindness and community.

Participants can read on their own, with family members, in a treehouse, on the beach, listening to an audiobook, it doesn’t matter how. Infants, kids and teens will earn prizes for reading 200, 400 and 500 minutes. Adults will be entered into raffle prize drawings for completing two, four and six books. Readers of all ages can complete extra activity badges to be entered into additional raffle prize drawings.

As in past years, readers of all ages will use the Beanstack online platform to log minutes read, badges earned and prizes collected along the way. Access the Beanstack website at or download the Beanstack app (available in the Apple App store or Google Play store).

Log in if registered in the past years or create an account to register the readers in your household to easily track everyone’s individual progress. If interested in tracking with pen and paper instead of using Beanstack, talk to your librarian.

We hope to see everyone at the wide variety of Summer Reading Club programs throughout the county this

summer. Pick up a copy of the Summer Reading Club Program Guide (or follow the virtual program guide link listed at to find programs near you.

From Kick-Off Parties to electromagnetic demonstrations to magic shows to live storytelling and concerts to reptile shows and beyond, there are plenty of opportunities to be All Together Now at your local library.
