Summer @ Your Library 2020


The 2019 World Series Champion Washington Nationals and Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) are proud to provide creative ways for Prince Georgians to stay connected with baseball and reading this summer. The Nationals and PGCMLS are partnering to present “Imagine Your Story,” a virtual “Summer @ Your Library” (S@YL) program for all ages that will run from May 18 through August 21. “Imagine Your Story” is the first online-only summer reading and engagement program in the history of the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System, ensuring that all Prince Georgians can safely engage with the Library and our beloved hometown baseball team as the community recovers from the public health emergency.

More than a traditional summer reading program, S@YL encourages children, teens, and adults to read 30 minutes each day, attend virtual programs (from yoga and puppet shows to musical performances and read-alouds), explore the wide range of streaming movies and music in the 85+ online library resources, and participate in interactive social media challenges.    

How to Play

  1. Go to the Beanstack online platform or app and sign up. Play online or on paper (download gameboard - English version, Spanish version). Use your library number or LINK to sign up. If you already have a Beanstack account, just sign in.
  2. Log activities towards your 20 point goal by earning a point each time you:
    1. Borrow eBooks, Audiobooks, films, music, magazines, etc.
    2. Read for 30 minutes
    3. Attend a virtual library event
  3. Participants will unlock prizes as they progress through the S@YL challenge on Beanstack.

Prizes

S@YL participants will earn prizes as they progress through the challenge. Due to the public health emergency, prize pick-up will be limited to designated dates and times later in the summer that will be announced (via email and social media) in the coming weeks. Prizes will include t-shirts, free books, and more.

All who complete the full challenge will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a special reward courtesy of the Washington Nationals, the presenting sponsor of S@YL 2020. Additional grand prize drawings include a $529 college fund courtesy of MD 529, gift cards, and more!
