2022 Summer Reading Information

“Oceans of Possibilities”

The 2022 Vermilion Parish Summer Reading Program will be different this year, but still fun and exciting!


?Reading Program Sign-Up:
This year we will be using the “Beanstack” to track reading participation this year. There will be no more paper registration at any of our library branches. You can sign up for Beanstack on a computer or download the app. As always, we are offering a program for children, teens & adults. Here are the instructions on how to register, you can also go by your local library branch and they will be happy to help you.

Beanstack allows you to:

  • Keep track of all family members’ reading logs,
    progress, and badges on one account.
  • Log reading from home or on the go to earn badges.
  • Complete activities at home.
  • Read and write book reviews of the books you read.
  • Use the Beanstack Tracker App to keep track of all
    reading and activities quickly and easily. This video
    gives a great explanation from downloading to logging

Getting Started on the Computer:

  1. Go to the Library’s Beanstack URL: vermilion.beanstack.org
    or download the free app from the Apple or Google store.
  2. The homepage will show you the available reading programs
    at the library. Choose the one that is right for you! *Tip*Multiple
    readers can be added to the same account. You can also decide to
    register kids separately if they would like to access themselves.
  3. Account Creator: Select the green “Register” button. Enter your
    first name, last name, age range (necessary due to age restrictions
    for programs), and a password to register.
  4. Once the Account Creator selects the “Next” button, Beanstack
    will ask if you would like to register another adult (select ‘yes’ or ‘no’)
    and then whether you would like to register another child
    (select ‘yes’ or ‘no’).
  5. A brown band at the bottom of the screen will alert you that you
    are successfully registered.
  6. As you accumulate badges, you will get virtual raffle tickets along
    the way for prize drawings (frequency varies by age group’s program)

    ?Starting May 23, 2022, you can go to any branch of the Vermilion Parish Library to register for all the activities/performers we have scheduled for the summer.
    ?Be on the lookout for more information on everything happening at the Vermilion Parish Library this summer by following this Facebook Page, checking our website and signing up for reminders from our Calendar of Events page.
