You can read, complete activities, or do both!
- How do I track my reading? You track your minutes read in 5-hour increments up to 25 hours (that’s 1,500 minutes!).
- Does reading an audiobook or graphic novel count? Absolutely!
- Does reading to my child count? Of course!
- What kind of activities count? You’ll find a full list of qualifying activities in Beanstack—including exploring library resources, attending library programs, and finding the library out in the community.
