Beanstack is a new web and mobile app for all ages. You can use it to track your reading and keep motivated to read, by earning badges, winning prizes and more! Check it out at otorohangalibrary.beanstack.org
Through Beanstack kids can sign up for our STEAM into Reading Challenge over the school holidays and be in to win a prize!! All kids 5 and over can join. They have to read for a total of 150 minutes over the school holidays (that’s less than 15 minutes a day) and attend one of our STEM sessions at the library to complete the programme. We have different STEM sessions running Monday to Friday during the holidays - places are limited so register quickly!
For pre-schoolers, we have the 1,000 books before the school programme. Each time you read to your child, use the Beanstack app or website to log the book. Your child will earn badges along the way, and when they reach 1000 books there will be a prize waiting for them at the library!
