Playing the Game Online

Register and follow the prompts on the TCFL Beanstack Page or download the Beanstack app (free from the Apple App store or the Google Play store) to your mobile device. Registration begins June 13.

What is Beanstack? An app and/or website where you can register for TCFL’s 2020 Summer Reading program, and earn “badges” by reading and/or completing activities!

Stop by the library to pick up your FREE blank journal and crayons just inside the doors at both branches of the library, 10 - 12 Noon, Monday - Friday, beginning June 15.

How do you play? Read 3 books to earn a virtual badge on Beanstack. Keep reading or listening to books as much as you can for more chances to enter the Grand Prize Drawing. Try out the fun activity badge too!

Prize Drawings will take place on August 31, and winners will be notified by phone. The grand prize is $529 toward a Maryland 529 College Savings Plan. You can view the official rules. Additional prizes may include a variety of free admission tickets and gift certificates.
