Ripon Public Library is pleased to announce its 2020 summer library program, "IMAGINE YOUR STORY!" In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, a combination of online and in-person options for registration, prizes, and programming are available. Simply download Beanstack to your device, set up a profile for yourself or your whole family, and start tracking reading activity to automatically become eligible for prizes! The Beanstack app is available for your smartphone on Google Play and the iTunes App Store. You can also use any web browser to participate - just visit our Beanstack website. If you prefer the old-fashioned way, a paper reading log is available at the library.

In recognition and support of local businesses, four participants will win $100 worth of Chamber Dollars! In addition, more than 70 prizes - including toys for kids & teens, electronics, kitchen gadgets, outdoor gear, crafts & more - are up for grabs. Track your reading to earn virtual badges and tickets which you can then enter in the prize drawings of your choice. Sprinkle a few around or go all-in on something you really, REALLY want to win. A complete list of prizes can be viewed via the Beanstack app or website.

A host of online programming options for all ages will be posted periodically throughout the summer. Look for options such as crafting videos, virtual scavenger hunts, cooking videos, book talks, reviews and readings, virtual board gaming, and storytimes on Facebook and the library's YouTube channel. A limited number of offline options including storytime outdoors, with social distancing practices in place, and walking tours of Ripon will be scheduled as well.
