Libraries Rock!

Summer Reading Program

Read books all summer long with Schuylerville Public Library!

Kids & Teens: Each week track your reading with our weekly BINGO sheets—online with Beanstack or with our paper tracker—and turn them in to the library for our weekly prize (everyone who turns in a bingo sheet receives a prize). All completed BINGO sheets will be entered into our big end of summer drawing as well!

Weekly prizes include free ice cream from Farmer’s Daughter and special prizes from Old Saratoga Mercantile. End of summer drawing prizes include movie tickets, Five Below gift certificates and more.

Paper BINGO sheets may be picked up at the Library, or downloaded here. For online tracking visit: schuylervillelibrary.beanstack.org/reader365

This summer, adults may enter to win a raffle basket for every book read.  Just ask for a ticket after you’ve completed a book or enter online at Beanstack!
