Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover!

June 2 - August 1, 2020

The branches are closed to the public this summer, but we will be having many opportunities to have fun with your library online! It's fun for everyone ages -3 to 2,000! 

We're Digging Deeper ⛏, Reading📕, Investigating🕵️‍♀️, and Discovering😲 things about the Library, your community, and your world! Adults can participate and get prizes this year too!

Dig into a good book and discover what treasures hide within! You’re invited to join your Butte County Library staff online for our 2020 Virtual Summer Reading Program!

All six library branches are participating online in June and July, and will have FREE events and activities for all ages on our Facebook page and our Instagram. Everyone of all ages are encouraged to participate by reading for fun, exploring their communities, and engaging in library event

Prizes will be handed out towards the end of Summer.

About Beanstack

As part of the discovering, we are introducing Butte County to Beanstack, an online Summer Reading site where you can track all of your reading and activities to get badges and points. The more points you get, the more prizes you can get!

Log your reading here on Beanstack!

Don't worry if you aren't tech-savvy -- it is pretty easy to use, but we will have some paper logs for those who want or need them.

Paper logs (and ages) (if you need them):

Note: If you use paper logs and not Beanstack, please keep your paper logs with you until we start collecting them. Do not put them in the book returns -- we won't know whose they are.

Visit us on Facebook and/or contact your local branch for updates and details!
