Thank you to everyone who participated in Summer Reading 2023 at the Flint Memorial Library: Read Between the Waves! We will leave this page up until school starts for folks who would still like to peruse the Summer Reading Lists.

How To Participate!

Participating in Summer Reading 2023 is super easy! All you need to do is sign up on Beanstack! Check out an ocean-themed book, and get a special raffle ticket for one of our many prizes!

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

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

Once you login, you should 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!
