The Charles County Public Library’s 2020 Summer Reading Program: Imagine Your Story begins June 13, 2020 and runs through August 22, 2020. All ages can register for this fantasy and folklore themed program by going to https://ccpl.beanstack.org. Just for registering you will get your first prize: a Summer Reading T-shirt*!

Participants choose their age category of Children (ages 0-12) or Teens/Adult (ages 13+) and begin earning points. Complete the program by earning 100 points through:

  • Reading Minutes
  • Logging Reviews, or 
  • Completing Activity Badge Challenges

In order to complete the Summer Reading Program, a participant must earn 100 points. Participants earn the halfway badge when they reach 50 points. Participants earn points through reading minutes, books, logging reviews or completing challenges under the activity badges.

Participants complete the program simply by reaching 100 points, no matter how these points are accumulated. Participants do not have to earn every badge in order to complete the Summer Reading Program.  A participant could acquire points solely from reading without doing any of the other activities and still complete the program.


Activity Badges

There are four activity badges. Each badge consists of 5 activities the participant can do to earn the badge. 

Each of the four activity badges are centered on a certain theme – Research, Create, Imagine or Read.
