Sign Up for Summer Reading Program 2024: Adventure Begins at Your Library!

Readers ages 0-109 are invited to join the Dougherty County Public Library this summer for the "Adventure Begins at Your Library" Reading Challenge!  There will be  programs, prize drawings, and more!

Our annual summer reading program for kids consists of two parts: 1) tracking books read and 2) our summer events.  While you can certainly attend our events without tracking reading, we encourage both.  Studies have shown that reading over the summer helps kids keep up with their learning, so they'll be all set to dive into new stuff when school starts again in the fall. 

How to get Started

Ages 0-12
1.  Register and track your reading online at, the Beanstack Tracker App, or pick up a paper tracker at any of our branches.
2.  Read five (5) books (being read to, listening to audiobooks, reading comics or graphic novels--everything counts).
3.  Go to  Beanstack to log your reading, complete the "Super Reader" activities (the other activities are optional but fun), and enter them into or ask any of our friendly staff to help. 
4.  Log your reading and activities from May 17 - July 23.

Teens and Adults
Summer reading isn't just for kids!  We also have a program for teens and adults.  
1.  Visit any DCPL location or go to to register.
2.  Read three (3) books (audiobooks, comics and graphic novels count too).
3.  Go to Beanstack to log your reading, write a book review, and complete the "Find Advenutre" activity (the other activities are optional but fun), to be entered into our grand prize drawing. 
4.  Log your reading, reviews, and activities from May 17 - July 23. 

Follow the links below to find the free app in your Apple App or Google Play store under the name Beanstack Tracker.
