Sign up for the 2021 Summer Reading Program with Beanstack beginning May 17!
You can begin logging your reading hours June 1, and the last day to log your hours is July 31.

Sign up on Beanstack or download a reading tracker.


Log the minutes you spend reading in your Beanstack account or on your Reading Tracker.

Win a prize after reading 360 minutes. You'll be able to pick it up after June 14. You'll also be entered into our grand prize drawing! Each age group will have a grand prize drawing.

If you've kept track of your reading on the Reading Tracker, bring that in, give us a call, or send us a photo of it and we will enter your time!

The 2021 Summer Reading Program ends July 31.

Need help? Email and we'll get back to you.

Reading by yourself counts.

Reading to someone counts.

Having someone read to you counts (including audiobooks).

This means you. You should sign up!

Books, magazines, comics, whatever--in print or online.

Even the back of your cereal box counts!

Don't forget about audiobooks!

Looking for something new to read? All you need is a library card to give these a try:

Email info@myscpl.or for help with any of these.

Children: Stuffed elephant microfiber screen cleaner and a color change cup
Teens: Fashionable fanny pack
Adults: Roll up stadium blanket

And you'll be entered into our grand prize drawing too!

There will be grand prizes for four age groups: Birth-Entering Kindergarten, Entering Grade 1- Entering Grade 5, Entering Grade 6-Entering Grade 12, and Adults.

Grownups--you can sign up too! And if you have kids or grandkids, they're more likely to read if you are too.

And Beanstack makes it very easy to record all of the time you spend reading with just one log in for your whole family.

Summer Events

We are bringing back in-person events for all ages this summer! We're even having outdoor storytime two days a week!

View our online event calendar to register for events.

Masks are required for everyone ages 3 and over at all indoor events.

Large events aren't possible yet, so we're improvising! Special guest performers from around the country will show off their skills in videos made especially for the St. Charles Parish community! Watch them on the St. Charles Parish Library Facebook page. Other special guests may appear via an online Zoom meeting.

And we will have Programs To Go every other week. Programs To Go are weekly craft or activities for children, teens, and adults!

Thank you to our sponsors!

Thank you to the Friends of the St. Charles Library for your continued support of the St. Charles Parish Library Summer Reading Program!
