Beanstack Reading Challenge

Winter Reading Challenge
December 1, 2021 - February 28, 2022

Reading Tracking with Beanstack for All Ages
We've used Beanstack for the past couple of summers to track your reading and activities, and we’re back with that again for a special Winter Challenge! Using the Beanstack app or logging in at the Beanstack website, you can log your reading and other fun winter activities to earn virtual tickets for the chance to win great prizes! This challenge runs from December 1, 2021 - February 28, 2022.

How to Register for Beanstack
You will need to create a new account to access WACL's challenges, even if you previously used Beanstack with us through the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Register for Beanstack by going to or downloading the "Beanstack Tracker" app.


What is Beanstack? Beanstack is a website and app for you to track your reading and activities, sometimes for the chance to win prizes!

How do I find it? Go to or search for the "Beanstack Tracker" app in your device's app store. If registering on the app, choose "School, Library, or Bookstore" and search for Western Allegheny Community Library (PA). Then tap "Sign Up" at the bottom of the screen.

What if I used Beanstack with WACL in 2020-2021 through the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh? You DO need to create a new account specifically for Western Allegheny Community Library in order to participate in our library's challenges. You're welcome to keep your CLP account as well and toggle between the two libraries, but you do need a separate registration for WACL.

Will more challenges be available in the future? You bet! 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, a spring reading challenge, and other special challenges are on the horizon. On the app, challenges can be found by tapping on "Discover" at the bottom of your screen.

Why should I register with Beanstack? Because it's fun! Enjoy completing reading challenges, participating in fun activities, and even adding your friends' and family's share codes to make it a larger battle. Plus, our Winter Reading Challenge provides you with the chance to win a gift card generously provided by our Friends group.
