All Together Now! The 2023 Summer Reading Program encourages kids, teens, and adults to read books and explore fun, educational and creative activities with Wichita Public Library all summer long!
Stop by your favorite Wichita Public Library location to register and get all the supplies for pre-readers, kids, and teens, including a calendar filled with awesome programs all summer long!
You can track your Summer Reading progress online by visiting Wichita Public Library's Beanstack site or by searching for Wichita Public Library on the Beanstack app. If you've never participated in one of our reading programs online, sign up on the Beanstack website by filling out some basic information, and then you can enroll in Summer Reading and other Wichita Public Library challenges.
Families can include their youngest in the reading fun! Pick up a timed reading record with tracking stickers from the Library and see how often you can read together. Once your pre-reader meets their goal, come in between June 27 and August 1 to collect special prizes just for them!
Set your own reading goals this summer and use our new badge books to track your progress. Once you meet your goal, come in between June 27 and August 1 to collect your prize pack and be entered into a grand prize drawing for a family membership to the Museum of World Treasures or $50 Amazon gift cards.
Set your own reading goals and track them with a customizable journal. If you choose to track your progress in Beanstack instead of the journal, download our notebook insert to get more information about this summer at the Library.
Need inspo? Attend one of our programs this summer to decorate your journal and swap ideas with other teens.
Once you meet your goal, come in any time between June 27 and August 1 to collect your prize pack and be entered into a grand prize drawing for $45 in gift certificates to Topgolf or $50 Amazon gift cards.
Summer Reading isn't just for kids! Adults can join in the fun by participating in our new summer bingo challenge! Complete activities that include reading, utilizing some new library services, and getting into our Wichita community.
When you complete a column, row, or diagonal on your virtual bingo card, you'll earn a coupon for a free slice of pizza (or similar) from a local restaurant, while supplies last, and be entered into a grand prize drawing for 2 free dinner/show tickets to the Mosley Street Melodrama. Complete every activity to get 5 additional entries for the grand prize drawing. You can print a copy of the bingo card, but the adult challenge is online only and must be completed in Beanstack to be eligible for prizes.
Track your progress on our Beanstack website, or download the free Beanstack app for your Android or Apple mobile device.
Bring the family for exciting musicians and thrilling adventures with performers from across the country!
