2022 Summer Reading
You can discover Oceans of Possibilities at the library!
Be sure to submit your reading and prize entries by Sunday, August 14!
Please note that Beanstack, prize drawings, and registered events are for Nesmith Library cardholders only: all are welcome to attend our non-registered events and to visit the library! If you live in Windham (or work for the town or schools) and don't yet have a library card, stop by to sign up for free!
How to Participate: For Adults
- Register on Beanstack (in your browser or download the app). You will need an email and password, and select the challenge best suited to your age group.
- Caregivers can sign up children as readers under a single account (and also participate in Adult Summer Reading themselves!)
- If you have used Beanstack with us in a prior summer or during 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, you will use the same log in and select this summer's challenge to get started.
- If you prefer not to use Beanstack to track your reading digitally, you can visit the front desk at the library to register on our paper list, and fill out raffle entry slips as you read books this summer, and place them in our raffle baskets. We will draw winners at the end of the summer from everyone who participates, whether on paper or online!
- Log your reading using Beanstack (in your browser or download the app), or filling out paper raffle tickets each time you visit the library.
- Want some suggestions? Request a Mystery Bag and a librarian will put together items for you!
- Attend Nesmith Library events:
- Visit the Event Calendar for dates and times
- Follow us on Facebook and Instagram
- Subscribe to our updates email newsletter
- Use raffle tickets in Beanstack to enter our prize drawings:
- You will earn tickets as you log your reading on Beanstack, and then you can apply those challenge rewards to prize drawings!
- If you prefer to fill out paper raffle tickets as you read, you can visit the front desk and place them in the raffle basket you wish to win!
- Winners will be drawn from the pool of all of our participants, on paper and online. Winners will be notified at the end of the summer.
Our Summer Reading Program is supported by our generous sponsors including the Friends of the Library of Windham (FLOW)!
