BPL Summer Reading Program

Thanks to funding from the Bartlesville Friends of the LIbrary, the Bartlesville Public Library is going virtual this summer with "Imagine Your Story!" — a service made possible by using an app that will help patrons register to participate in BPL's annual Summer Reading Program.

The annual Summer Reading Program will kick off at 6 p.m. June 12 at the new Tower Center at Unity Square, located at Sixth Street and Dewey Avenue. The event will feature a performance by the entertainers of Inspyral Circus Entertainment, a train ride, outdoor games and more.

"We will have a tent set up where attendees can register for the Summer Reading Program via Beanstack," said Youth Services Librarian Laura Pryce. “However, there’s no need to wait until then. Participants can sign up now by downloading the app or going to the Beanstack website, at https://bartlesville.beanstack.org."

Beanstack will not only allow patrons to register for the Summer Reading Program from the comfort of home, but it will also allow them to independently log their weekly reading, complete activity challenges, unlock virtual badges, earn virtual tickets for prizes and check the schedule of events.

The Summer Reading Program is for all ages. BPL will offer challenges and prize drawings for pre-readers, children, teens and adults. Participants will need to download the free Beanstack Tracker app onto a device or go to on a PC and follow the prompts to register, after which they will be able to access the appropriate programs, challenges and schedule of events. Contact library staff at (918) 338-4170 for assistance. For those who may not have access from home, there will be a dedicated tablet at the library for participants to use.

The majority of summer events will take place outdoors at the Tower Center at Unity Square or other outdoor facilities. The schedule will be available on Beanstack, BPL’s social mediawebsite and in printed form at the library.
