All completed sheets will be on display in the hallway and prizes will be awarded by age group.

Register Using Beanstack

There’s also a Beanstack App for both iPhones and Androids that you can download and more easily track your progress and claim your badges.

Donate to the Lowell Humane Society!

Throughout the summer, we are encouraging all ages to bring in items that we’ll donate to the Lowell Humane Society! Donation boxes will be located in the Youth Services Department. Items most needed are unscented cat litter, pet toys, bleach, and paper towels, but a more detailed wish list can be downloaded here.

Readers that donate can complete the badge on Beanstack or their log sheet, earning a ticket to enter into any of our raffles!
