And that’s a wrap on our 2020 Summer Library Program! 

As a community, we:

  • Recorded 532,949 minutes of reading
  • Earned 5,781 badges
  • Wrote 120 book reviews

Way to go, Menomonee Falls! We hope you enjoyed the reading challenges and activities just as much as we did! We look forward to providing more reading challenges with Beanstack.

Our Children’s and Teen staff want to thank all of the community businesses who helped make the Summer Library Program possible, from providing coupons and prizes to participating in our Family Fairy Tale Scavenger Hunt!

  1. I wish there had been some activity challenges for the adults. Even something simple, such as “read a mystery without a murder, nonfiction about climate change, etc”. Or something on the theme, like “read a modern fairy tale”.

    1. Those are some great ideas Laura! This was our first time using Beanstack, and we wanted to keep it simple for patrons but also our staff. Now that we know our way around Beanstack, adding variety is definitely something we’ll explore in future adult challenges.
