Beanstack Reading Challenge Software & Mobile App (SWAN Discount)

Last updated Sep 16, 2021 · Maintained by Dawne Tortorella

If your library wants to get started with Beanstack now, see the document (below) with base pricing for Beanstack Plus, as well as an overview of the service. Through September 30, 2021, an immediate 15% discount is extended to new SWAN libraries joining. You can reach out directly to Lindsey Hill, Director of Library & Corporate Accounts at Zoobean (lindsey@zoobean.com). Be sure to let Lindsey know you are a SWAN library. We will work with Lindsey and our libraries on the start-up process.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Beanstack demonstration sessions. As we shared at those sessions, 44 of our 95 public libraries in SWAN currently use Beanstack to monitor summer reading and more. The software and mobile app support year-round reading challenges and tracking, including winter reading. 

Given the interest in Beanstack, SWAN reached out for additional information and pricing. We have included Beanstack in a grant request that is pending. If this grant is funded, funding support will be available for 2 years. Any existing contracts will be extended, so don't hesitant to get started if you want to license Beanstack now.
