Children’s Summer Library Program

The Summer Library Program is here! Join us for reading challenges, events, and activities for all ages. There is something for everyone at your Library this summer!

We use Beanstack to run our reading challenges. Beanstack is an online platform that allows you to log your minutes read, complete activities, and write reviews to earn digital badges, prizes, and tickets for prize drawings.

Visit MenomoneeFallsLibrary.Beanstack.org or download the Beanstack Tracker app to your mobile device to get started!

Need some help? Email your questions to mfpl@menomonee-falls.org or call 262-532-8915 (kids & teens) or 262-532-8920 (adult).

Children (ages 0 – 12)

Read at least 800 minutes to complete the challenge. Record your reading time, complete activities, and write reviews to earn fun prizes and tickets for prize baskets.

Hey parents! We have an Adult Summer Library Challenge too, and guess what? Reading to your kids counts towards your challenge! Read at least 1000 minutes to complete the challenge for a chance to win free books!

Last summer we logged 826,707 minutes of reading. Can we reach 1,000,000 minutes this year?
