Teen Summer Reading Program (13-18)

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.  Log the books you read and attend programs at the Teen Center to earn badges and rewards. To complete the teen summer reading challenge, you must read and log 10 books.

As you earn your badges and rewards, you will also earn virtual tickets that you can put towards any of our three prize baskets. ALL participants are invited to join our End of Summer Reading Celebration. Winners of our raffles will be drawn at the end of Summer Reading Celebration Aug 11, 2023.

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.
