Summer Reading Program

“Imagine Your Story” is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program. Once again, the Marshes of Glynn Libraries will manage our reading challenge with Beanstack, an online platform for tracking reading and other activities.

Participants can use either the Beanstack website or the Beanstack app to participate. To use the website, visit https://moglibraries.beanstack.org. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the Beanstack app for your device.

If you already have an account in Beanstack from a previous summer, you can sign in with the same username and password. If you are new to Beanstack, follow the instructions to create an account and add readers.

We will continue with virtual events through June and offer limited in-person programs at our libraries starting in July. All attendees will be required to wear face masks except for children under age 2. The library will have masks available for those who need them.
