Summer Reading 2023.png

Robinson Township Public Library is excited to present you with our Summer Reading program! We kick things off starting June 12, and will have loads of fun programs through August 12!

You can sign up online for our reading challenge or stop in for some paper reading logs. Teens and Adults are invited to participate in our Bingo challenge! 

Participants under 12 are invited to come to the library for a weekly prize. Teens and Adults participating are eligible to win one of our multiple drawings for a bag of books and/or the grand prize drawing at the end of summer.

Our online summer reading challenge is provided via Beanstack! Create a Beanstack account to participate online to earn badges and keep track of your reading and activities completed this summer.

If you participated in previous years, you will need to create a new account via this link as we now have a separate Beanstack from Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. (make sure to select Robinson Library's reading challenge to be eligible for our prizes).

Bingo Cards for Teens and Adults

Log your reading, participate in activities, and submit book reviews to earn badges in beanstack. Pick and choose what badges to earn a bingo and receive an entry for a grand prize drawing at the end of summer. Complete the whole Bingo card to earn an additional entry into the grand prize drawing! 

Scavenger hunt

Starting June 12th, each Monday a clue will be hidden somewhere in the Robinson area.
A photo and a hint will be posted on Facebook/Instagram. The first to find the clue and bring it to our Front Desk will claim that week's Scavenger Hunt prize!

Prizes vary each week, from gift cards to Library swag.
Please note one prize per family. 
Prizes are for those 12 and under.
**No Scavenger Hunt clues the week of July 3rd**
