Summer Adventure Club

With this year’s Summer Adventure Club, readers have more choices than ever! Participants can pursue a variety of activities to complete our program and earn a final prize. There’s nothing to pick up or turn in – you can join the Summer Adventure Club at olpl.beanstack.org starting June 1. If you already have an account, simply sign in and register for Reading Colors Your World. If you don’t, choose an adult in the family to be the “account creator.” Register them, then add other family members under that account. There are many reading and activity options to complete the program this summer. Choose the ones that are right for you, then mark them off in Beanstack. After you complete the program, you may pick up your completion prize at the Library starting July 1. The final day to receive your prize is Monday, Aug, 9.
