Summer Reading

DTDL’s 2020 Summer Program may look a little different than previous years, but we still plan to offer a variety of opportunities for all ages to read, learn, and have fun over the summer months. This year we invite you to use your imagination to tell stories, escape to faraway lands, celebrate heroes, and add a little magic to your life.  

Summer Events
DTDL is hosting a variety of virtual summer events that you can participate in online or offline from home. Programs include storytimes, STEAM activities, book clubs, online performances, and more. All events are listed in our online calendar.

Summer Reading Program
DTDL is using an online reading program this summer called Beanstack. All ages can participate, from babies to adults. Earn points by reading, completing activities, and writing reviews. Accumulate points to win prizes and enter drawings! Register your whole family today to get started. Visit the Beanstack website or download the Beanstack Tracker app (available for free in the App Store and Google Play).  Need help getting started with Beanstack? Check out our quick video overview.

DTDL has five age group reading challenges this summer. Each reader can participate in one challenge.
Baby/Toddler: best for ages 0-2, open to ages 0-3
Kid: best for ages 3-8, open to all ages
Tween: best for ages 9-12, open to ages 8-13
Teen: best for ages 13-18, open to ages 12-18
Adult: best for ages 19+, open to ages 18+

If you are unable to use Beanstack, you can still participate in our summer reading program!  Print out our offline, all-ages reading log and use it to track your family’s reading and activities, win prizes, and earn drawing entries.

Prize Updates
This site will be updated with prize pickup information throughout the summer, including when and how prizes can be obtained in the library or via curbside pickup. 

Prizes are not currently available for pickup at DTDL.  We will continue holding onto the prizes until it is safe to pick them up in the library or curbside.  At that time, you will be able to pick up all prizes at once.  We will update this page with any changes.  Please continue to participate in the reading program!

The summer program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
