New for 2020: Adult Summer Reading!

Summer Reading isn’t just for kids anymore! We are excited to invite library patrons ages 18 and up to participate in our first ever Adult Summer Reading Challenge.

How It Works

  • Create your FREE account on the City of Destin’s Beanstack site.
  • Click the ’Log Reading and Activities’ button at the top of the page to log your reading to work toward your reading goal: 12 hours by July 31st.
  • Each time you reach a reading milestone, you’ll earn a digital Logging Badge! You’ll also earn two special Challenge Badges: one when you register, and one when you reach your reading goal.
  • Along the way you can participate in a variety of online activities to enhance your reading experience. You can earn Review Badges for writing reviews of the things you’ve read and Activity Badges for participating in one of our online book discussion groups.

To complete this challenge we recommend reading an average of 15 minutes a day between June 5 and July 31, 2020 (though you can certainly log more if you like). You can count all kinds of things as your daily 15: books, audiobooks, podcasts, and magazines all qualify, as do activities like nature journaling, daily devotionals, and reading the newspaper. You can also log any time you spend reading to your children on both their log and yours!
