Summer Reading Program 2022

Summer reading is virtual on Beanstack for logging reading, earning coupons and books, and winning grand prizes!
Visit veronapubliclibrary.beanstack.org and/or get the Beanstack Tracker app to create an account starting June 1. Then register each family member who would like to participate. If you've already registered on Beanstack for past library challenges, that login information will still work. Click here for more detailed instructions about how to register and log your reading and activities.

Prizes may be picked up any time the library is open starting June 13.
