2020 Summer Reading Program Kickoff

Our Summer Reading Program is open and ready for your signup! It’s going to look a little different this year, but we are still planning a fantastic summer with reading challenges, programs and activities! This year we will be using an online service, Beanstack, for our Summer Reading Program signups, events, reading logs, and prize drawings. Signups and programming officially begins Monday, June 8.

Register for the reading program and complete steps online at https://carthagelibrary.beanstack.org

Apps are also available for several popular platforms:

Expanded Ebooks Access via Tumble Books!

A lot of you are familiar with our Missouri Libraries to Go ebooks through the Libby and Overdrive apps. But do you need more ebooks for kids at home? As a patron of Carthage Public Library, you have access to TumbleBook Library Deluxe, a wonderful resource with a huge amount of interactive children’s books. It can be accessed off-site using the link below.

It’s accessible outside the web browser, too. You can download the TumbleBooks App for Android or App for Apple Devices like iPhone and iPad and enjoy the library’s TumbleBooks offerings on your phone or tablet. If asked, choose Carthage Public Library in Carthage, Missouri as your library, and enter your library card number which should start with a capital P followed by five numbers (it will look something like P12345). You must have a library card to access this resource from home.

But that’s not all! Tumbleweed Press has generously decided to ALSO grant to our library access to the products listed below. Access to these products is available until August 31, 2020. Please use the special links below to access the sites; the username and password are embedded in the link itself.
