What better way to start the school year than to keep that summer reading spirit alive with Beanstack! Whether you are gearing back up for a new school year with Beanstack or getting ready to dive in for the first time, DPI continues to offer Beanstack to public school library programs. As a reminder, Beanstack uses competition, recognition, and proven gamification principles to motivate students to read and grow your school district’s reading culture. Check out this flyer to learn more about all that Beanstack has to offer your school community.

This opportunity is being funded through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant, which is also being used to provide Beanstack in public libraries. Through a unique feature of Beanstack called tandems, students can connect their school and public library accounts. This provides an open door for collaboration between public and school libraries.

Stay tuned for an exciting exclusive reading challenge with great prizes coming soon to Wisconsin libraries as well as an opportunity to provide feedback to Beanstack for new product development work.
