How To Play!

The Tails and Tales 2021 program is a fun online reading giveaway:

For every day that you read, and enter your reading on Beanstack, you will receive an entry for a weekly prize pack giveaway! We will give away 10 prize packs weekly. You may only win once, but everyone who reads is eligible. The more you read, the more entries you receive!

The Flint Memorial Library will also be taking part in the state of Massachusetts’ Boston Bruins challenge from July 1 to August 16. If we meet our goal, patrons will be eligible for prizes like in game experiences, signed pucks, signed sticks, and signed jerseys.

You may take part in both programs! Join both challenges, but only track your reading once. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

We are online! Our summer reading program can be found on the computer here, the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Track your reading progress in the app to be entered to win a prize pack. 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!
