How to Play!

The Imagine Your Story 2020 program is a fun online reading adventure game:

Enter the forest here — Escape the Enchanted Forest

In an unusual twist to the summer, you’ve been trapped in the Enchanted Forest!  There are fairies, dragons, genies, kings and queens, monsters, and more ahead of you.  In order to make your way out of the forest, you’ll need wits, bravery, clear thinking, and a good sense of humor.

Each activity you complete will get you closer to the edge of the forest.  You may complete the activities in any order you like, but the Enchanted Forest won’t let you leave until eight are completed.

Go forward bravely, intrepid readers!

Many thanks to our friends at the Bedford (MA) Free Public Library for this wonderful idea.

We are online! Our summer reading program can be found on the computer here, the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Play the game and track your reading progress in the app. It has a built-in stop watch and it will help you keep track of your own minutes. If you had a login last summer, it will be the same this year. New readers will need to register.

If you signed up online in 2019, your login ID and password are the same.

If you signed up by paper at the library at any time, your login is:
Username: Your email address
Password: beanstalk

Once you login, you may change it to something more personal.

Siblings are on the same account, just change readers using the top-left menu (on both the website and app).

Can’t remember your login? Recover your password using this form here. If you are still having trouble, contact us!
