Through appropriate materials and programming, we will provide a safe, interesting and inviting place for children of all ages to learn from the time they take their first steps toward independence through the time they are reading, researching and learning on their own. Children and caregivers will find books, DVDs, books with CDs, eBooks, puzzles, toys, Early Literacy computers, touch-and-see board, magazines, and children’s programming in SCPL’s Children’s Department.
What is Beanstack?
Introducing our new online book discovery service for readers of all ages –
Beanstack is a free online service that offers an innovative new way to connect children and their families with books and educational reading activities that match each person’s interests, ages and reading level. It also includes book and activity logging, badges and registration for all members of the family under one account.
Available 24/7 through your computer or mobile device, Beanstack also uses the information you provide to send out great book and activity recommendations to each registrant on a regular basis. To make it even more useful, listed books are linked directly to the library’s catalog. And, be sure to take advantage of the various book reviews or write reviews of your latest reads!
How to Sign Up
Beanstack is easy to use and available both online and as a mobile app. Get started by visiting the Spencer County Public Library website at http://spencercountypubliclibrary.org/ and clicking on the Beanstack tab to create your account. You can also register through the app (find out how under “Get the App”).
Have your Library Card ready and choose how you would like to register (as an individual, registering a child, registering a family or group) and then complete all required fields (marked with *) in the online form. If you do not have a Library Card, visit your local branch to sign up today!
Note: An email address is required, if you do not have an email address you will need to create one first then come back to register for Beanstack.
Once registered, you can access your account online or in the app by signing in with your username and password.
Get the App
Click the links below to find the free app in your Apple App or Google Play store under the name “Beanstack Tracker” and select “Get” or “Install.”
Once downloaded, open the app and follow the simple step-by-step prompts to create an account for yourself, your child, or your family/group. If you’ve already created your account through the website, you can skip this step and just sign in to your existing account with your registered username and password.
Be sure to have a valid email address and your Library Card ready before starting the registration process. If you do not have an email address, you will have to first create one and then reopen the app in order to register. If you do not have a Library Card, visit your local branch to sign up today!
Registering on the Website vs. Through the App: Since the app does not use our direct website link, the first prompt in creating your account is selecting “Find Your School or Library” and entering “Spencer County Public Library” in the search option. Otherwise the process is the same as registering on the website. All fields are required except for phone number.
