Deschutes Public Library

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The countdown has begun! Don’t miss a summer of reading, exploring and earning great prizes. All ages can participate in Summer with the Library, starting Thursday, June 1.

Join Deschutes Public Library for a summer chock-full of programs for all ages, fun giveaways, and the chance to win some amazing prizes. There are two ways for adults, kids, and families sign up:

  • Download the Beanstack app from your app store, or register via the Beanstack website (, to track reading and activities.
  • Pick up a paper reading and activity log, available at all Deschutes Public Library locations.

Just for signing up, kids and teens get a book, and adults get a custom word poetry magnet set. Complete a reading and activity log to get another prize and be entered into the drawing for grand prizes such as puppets, books, and LEGO® kits for kids, and gift cards and a library-themed Hydro Flask® for teens and adults. Grand prize winners will be contacted in early September to claim their prize.
