Let's Read 15,000 Books Together!

Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Goal

The Summer Reading Program has gone virtual! We are inviting all ages to join in on our reading goal of 15,000 books (originally 3,000 books) as a community! In the first month of the Summer Reading Program, participants doubled the goal by reading over 6,000 books and now the Friends of the Roanoke County Public Library, the sponsors of the Summer Reading Program, challenges the community to read 15,000 books. 

If the new goal is met, the Friends will donate $1,000 to Feeding America Southwest Virginia. The Summer Reading Program goes through August 8 and is for all ages.

To complete the program and earn a prize you only need to read 3 books! Every book, ebook, audiobook, eaudiobook, and magazine counts. Visit our eCollection to browse titles for all ages.

How to Register

Visit our Beanstack site or download the app to register yourself and anyone in your family that is participating in the program. Only one login is required per family to make registration easy.

Each age group has the opportunity to participate in activities to earn more drawing prizes. Complete three activities to earn up to three activity badges. Find out your activities on Beanstack.
