We are excited to introduce Milford Public Library patrons to Beanstack, an online portal that provides free personalized recommendations to your children. This new, online service is free to Milford Public Library cardholders. Patrons can sign up here and use Beanstack from their home computer, mobile devices, or in the library. Beanstack is an innovative new way to connect children and their families with books and educational apps that match each child's interests, age, and reading level.
Every week, a book in the library’s collection will be suggested specifically for each registered child based on the information customers provide in their online profile. Recommendations are sent by email and are also available via an online profile that families can access anytime. In addition, each recommendation is accompanied by a learning guide containing helpful tips, background information, and activities to encourage engagement and critical thinking.With Beanstack you can also participate in our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Simply enroll your child(ren) as readers and start logging titles. Badges will be awarded at set levels and you will receiving notifications of when you reach prize levels. We will also be running several reading challenges throughout the year so keep an eye out for those too. Click here to join in the fun.
