Compare Summer Reading Programs

Eligible for more than one summer reading program and not sure which to choose? Let’s compare.

All ages can log reading and activities through Beanstack. Rubber Ducky Club can be logged on paper.

Except for the Rubber Ducky  Club, all ages log days of reading to earn points toward prizes and tickets toward grand prizes. One day of reading = 1 point. We recommend 20 minutes of reading per day.
