Summer Reading Program

SRP  Banner

Join our Summer Reading Program to read together as a community and reach a reading goal of 10,000 books this summer. 

If we reach the goal, the Friends of the Library (sponsors of SRP) will donate $1,000 to Feeding Southwest Virginia! Help us reach this goal by signing up. And did you know that you can earn prizes just by reading? We have prizes for all ages.

How to Participate

Registration opens June 7, 2021! To complete the program, just read three books. Want to keep reading? Go for it! The more books you read, the closer we will get to our community reading goal.

To register visit our Beanstack website or download the app on your smart device. Beanstack is the same platform we use for our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, Winter Reading Programs, and last year's Summer Reading Program --- and is easy to use. Only one login is required per family.

If you'd prefer a paper log you can print one off on the website or pick one up at your favorite RCPL location. Once you complete your paper log, give us a call or stop by and see us. We will add your books to our reading goal total and give you information on prizes.


Looking for fun things to do this summer or ways to be active? Try some of our activities! Everyone has the opportunity to participate in activities through Beanstack.


Each age group will earn prizes for completing the program! At the end of the summer, each library location will offer a drawing to all participants that complete the program.
