Note: If you have participated in one of our reading programs in the past using Beanstack, you don't need to create a new user to sign up - simply login to your original account and check the box to register for the current program.

Teens need to read one book each week to earn a prize.

Use Beanstack to log your books online, earn badges for books read and activities completed. You will also have access to themed guides for researching and enjoying topics of interest, write reviews to share with others, and see what other kids are reading this summer. Follow this link for more information on using Beanstack.

Come into the library to enjoy some special winter-themed events.

Teen Volunteers

If you are between the ages of 12 - 18 and are interested in helping in the Youth Services department of Samuels Library, please apply online using the form below, or pick up an application in person. Candidates will enjoy working with children and be willing to maintain neatness in the library and do light office work. As volunteers gain experience there may be opportunities to help with programming and reference. Volunteers are an important part of our Youth Services department and are greatly appreciated.
