Sign Up Tips

One email per account
Like most online accounts, one email address provides you with one account.

Multiple members under one account
Sign yourself up first, and then add additional readers.  Perfect for families!

What you’ll be asked for
The basics — your name, email, age group, phone number and postal code (optional), etc. 

Download the App
Log on when reading on the go with the Beanstack app. Download the app for either iPhone or Android.

What Can You Read?

Read anything
Anyone at any age can read what they like, from novels to textbooks, audiobooks to zines. 

All items counted the same
Each book counts as one item read, whether it’s a picture book or Harry Potter.

Books read together count for everyone
Reading a book to a child, or listening to an audiobook together counts as a book read for them and for you too.

Log in and click the purple button in the upper left, or track it on paper.
