Summer Reading Program Registration: Grades 7 – 12

Registration for Summer Reading Program 2018 begins online Monday, June 4, 2018. This summer all participants must register online either from home or within the library. You must have your library card number available to register.


BEANSTACK is a web based program which will be used to enter and track books read. You may log books read to your account from home or at the library. Also, you may visit the Prize Table table where a volunteer or librarian will log your books for you. An advantage of using Beanstack is to keep a record of the number of books read for as long as you keep your account active.

For teens entering grades 7-12 in the Fall 2018, you must read 1 book a week, at your reading level or above, to earn a weekly prize (Note: 3 Manga or 3 YA Graphic Novels = 1 Book Read). Log your book(s) in BEANSTACK and then visit the Prize table at the library once a week to receive your weekly prize. You may receive only one prize per week. You can pick up your first weekly prize beginning July 2.

In addition to your weekly prize, for every 1 book you read throughout the summer, you will earn a raffle ticket. Your earned raffle ticket can then be placed into boxes of your choice to win Big Prizes and Book Bundles. The more books you read, the more raffle tickets you will earn, which means the greater the chance you will have to win one of the Big Prizes or Book Bundles.  The last day to enter raffle tickets to be considered for Big Prizes and Book Bundles is Tuesday, August 14 by 7:00 PM.  You must be a Nutley Resident and active Nutley Card Member to win a Big Prize or Book Bundle. Only one Big Prize or Book Bundle win per person allowed. Winners will be announced after Rizzo’s Wildlife Discovery Show on Thursday, August 16. Winners do not need to be present at the show to win.
