Beanstack Demo - SWAN Discount Opportunity

Last updated Sep 7, 2021 · Maintained by Dawne Tortorella

Nearly half of our SWAN public libraries are using Beanstack to promote and track reading programs. The folks as Zoobean are offering extended discounts to SWAN libraries based on participation levels. Working with their team, SWAN staff will provide additional support to our member libraries in training, deployment, and tracking with Beanstack.

Beanstack staff will lead two quick 30-minute demo sessions from SWAN libraries. Register for one of the sessions (choose your preferred date on the drop-down selection). NOTE: Times may be listed in Eastern time on the Zoom registration form.

  • Tuesday, September 14th, 10:00 AM
  • Wednesday, September 15th, 1:30 PM

If your library is already using Beanstack, we hope you can attend and share your experience with colleagues.

What is Beanstack?

Beanstack is the leading web service and mobile app tool libraries use to create, manage, and measure year-long and summer reading challenges. With Beanstack, your library can:

  • drive engagement by customizing your reading challenges, 
  • get data-driven insights and on-demand reports, and 
  • access a huge library of pre-made monthly reading challenge templates that make it easy to set up your challenges in minutes.

Plus you’ll also gain access to Beanstack’s mobile app making it simple for patrons to register, track their reading, and earn incentives on the go. It provides a one-stop online shop for reading challenges, including summer reading, 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten, and many more throughout the year.
