How do you draw prizes?

Beanstack raffles will be weighted electronic drawings based on number of reviews, challenges, and books logged. All are due by August 13th. Prize winners will be notified and will select from available prizes.

Do you need to be a Duxbury resident to play?

No - anyone is welcome to participate, but prizes must be picked up in person.

But I am too young to read New York Times!

Feel free to read any newspaper. How about the Clipper?

I am participating in the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program via Beanstack also. Do those books count toward summer reading?

Yes! You can count the 1,000 books and the summer reading books concurrently. If you are registered in both programs, it will automatically count in both programs.

Can I read the same books again and again?

Yes! Count every time you read, even if it’s your favorite book again, and again, and again…

"Beyond the Beaten Path" Statewide Summer Library Program is sponsored by Duxbury Free Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners
