Storytime in the Sun!

Posted by john on

Join us outside on the south lawn for storytime! We’ll share books, sing songs, and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. The first 11 families will have a spot to sit in our storytime area and will receive a copy of the book we read! This program is geared for children up to 6 years old. Masks will be required for individuals who have not been vaccinated and those under 12 years old.

Posted by chhabria on


Hey Adults! You too can participate in our Summer Reading challenge! Your goal this summer is to complete 10 activities between June 12th and August 12th.

You will earn a prize pack after completing all 10 activities in Beanstack or completing 10 activities on our paper log.

Registered the kids? Great, add the adults using the same Beanstack platform. No additional accounts required.


*Paper activity logs are also available and can be scanned and emailed to the adult department or dropped off at the library depending on closure and/or levels of service.


To print a paper activity log, click this link Adult Summer Reading Board.


We’re giving away some great prizes this year, which include sunglasses, a beach bag, a cup, and a book!

  1. Download the FREE Beanstack app
  2. Open it and select “Yes”. Search for Zion-Benton Public Library.
  3. Sign in to your account. If you don’t have one, create an account at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Once you are in, you can set up your family members as Readers. If they are already listed, please update their ages in the Account>Readers option at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  5. Start logging activities!

Two Ways to Register and Log Your Activities Using our Beanstack Platform:
