Dayton library's summer program introduces 'Fitbit for Reading'


DAYTON—The Columbia County Rural Library District is moving ahead with summer programing despite the pandemic.

Young readers are encouraged to sign up for their new Summer Reading Program, which began on June 15.

The program gets a technological spin this summer as readers are encouraged to sign up for a computer application called Beanstack. Touted as the ‘Fitbit for Reading,’ the app lets patrons time reading sessions, log books by scanning their ISBN numbers, keep a log of current and past reading, track daily reading stats, and achieve streaks for reading multiple days in a row.

The library has set a reading goal for its young patrons of 50,000 hours and the CCRLD’s website tracks the accumulated total. Currently, 12 readers have logged 4,585 minutes towards that goal. Readers can earn badges, tickets for drawings, and prizes.

The curbside book pickup program continues, with pickup offered all day by appointment on Tuesday, and from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Friday.

Garden Yoga will be offered on Fridays during Curbside Pickup, and youngsters can also take home a robotics kit! For more information, visit:
