Start earning prizes now by signing up for
Summer Reading at the Fond du Lac Public Library!

Starting June 1, the Fond du Lac Public Library will invite users of all ages to “Read Beyond the Beaten Path,” the theme of Summer Reading @ FDLPL 2022. Through Aug. 14, kids, teens, and adults may read books to earn prizes and have a little fun.

Returning for 2022 is an online logging option. Use the Fond du Lac Public Library’s online portal, Beanstack, to record your minutes of reading.

Click here to visit Beanstack now!

Prefer to record minutes on paper? Stop by the Fond du Lac Public Library, at either the Main Library downtown or the Express branch on the east side, starting June 1 to get a paper card to record your progress. 

Whether recording on paper or online, participation is easy, and earns participants instant rewards along the way as well as a chance at a grand prize at the end of the summer. All reading counts, and reading aloud counts for both the reader and the listener.

Be sure to keep logging those minutes all summer!
