Teen Reading Program

Elk Grove Strong:
Hometown Heroes
June 15 - August 9, 2020

New this summer, a virtual reading program! This year we're honoring the hometown heroes of Elk Grove Village.

How to Participate

Create a Beanstack account, and then register for the 2020 Youth Summer Reading Program online or download the Beanstack Tracker app from the Apple App Store or from Google Play. Then, log the minutes you read in Beanstack.

If you do not have the ability to track your reading online or via the app, call the Youth Services Department at (847) 725-2167 and you will track the reading with us over the phone. Print a log sheet or request a log sheet to be mailed to you.

Prizes and Badges

You will earn a badge for every hour you read. Prizes for reading include a tote bag, t-shirt, and book. You can also earn badges for finishing certain activities. The activity badges are not required to finish the reading program, but will earn the reader extra tickets towards the Final Prize Drawing.

Final Prize Drawing

A total of four tickets can be earned. Prizes for the final drawing include $10 gift cards to Big Sammy's, Coach's Corner, Dairy Queen, Jarosch Bakery, and Tapalpa Restaurant. In Beanstack, you can decide which gift card you would like to win. The drawing will take place on Monday, August 10. Winners will be posted on this page.

How to Claim Prizes

Prizes will be given out sometime after July 1. The tote bag will be given out with the t-shirt. Check back here or on Beanstack for updates on how to pick up your earned prizes and choose your book. Please make sure to provide us with an accurate phone number and email when registering for Beanstack so that we can contact you if needed.
