Introducing Beanstack

The Youth Department is happy to introduce Beanstack to our community of families and readers. This new e-resource offers:

  • weekly book recommendations and learning tips for kids and their caregivers that target books in Westland library's catalog; 
  • learning tracks that kids and families can follow at their own pace to earn badges;
  • book lists and app lists that libraries around the U.S. recommend for use with your family; 
  • online sign-up and tracking for Summer Reading Program;
  • and much, much more.

Beanstack will officially be open for all library users on Tuesday, December 1st. Set up a profile for your child(ren) at www.westland.beanstack.org.

Stop by or call the Youth desk if you have any questions.
