Summer Reading Program 2024: Read, Renew, Repeat!

Renew your love of reading this summer at the New Berlin Public Library! Join our community of readers by enrolling in this year’s summer reading program titled, Read, Renew, Repeat. The program will take place June 1 - August 31, and the theme features the idea of conservation and encourages reading as a restorative method of self-improvement and self-preservation.

Designed for all ages, everyone is welcome to join the program by enrolling through the Beanstack app, or by stopping by one of the reference desks!


How To Participate

Designed for all ages, everyone is welcome to join the program after June 1 in one of two ways; either by picking up an age-group-specific paper log at the library, or by going paper-less and using your Beanstack account through NBPL.

If you already have an account, you can simply enroll in the 2024 Summer Reading Program. If Beanstack is new to you, you can sign up by downloading the app on your mobile device or by clicking the Beanstack logo. You can then create an account for yourself and all the readers in your household.

If you prefer a hard-copy, please stop by the reference desks to register and receive a paper reading log.

The experience and prize earnings will be the same whether you chose to participate electronically or with a paper log.


Read, Log and Win Prizes

Once you have enrolled, start reading or completing activities to earn prizes! Any reading or story-listening done between June 1 and August 31 will count toward the program! Everything counts- books, ebooks, audiobooks, comic books, magazines, newspapers, you name it!
