Adult Summer Reading

How does summer reading work?


Sign up online at Milford Beanstack. Preregistration begins on May 17th but you may not begin logging books until June 1st. You may want to download the Beanstack app on your phone.

Read and Log Books

The Milford Public Library summer reading program runs from June 1st – Aug. 12th. After you read a book scan the ISBN from the back of the book to the Beanstack app or manually add it to the webpage. To complete the adult’s summer reading challenge, you must read and log 5 books. Raffle tickets can be earned by completing summer reading and completing activities.

Books can be graphic novels, magazines, audiobooks, ebooks, or hard copy books.  You can read books that you own, library books, or borrowed from any source.
