Registration: You have two options. If you have an email address and reliable internet access, you should sign your family up for the online program on Beanstack. If you don't have an email address or reliable internet connection, you can still participate by phone.

  • Online: visit our Beanstack site to register
    • Only one family member needs to register an entire family of readers (there is a summer reading challenge for everyone!) - teens may register for their own separate accounts (they just need a unique email)
    • Click "Register an Individual or Family"
    • Select "I am registering myself" to make your account first and automatically register for the adult summer reading challenge; you will then be able to add another adult and children
    • Enter your information first (regardless of which option you picked); you are the account creator
    • Choose an email address to be your login and a password - you will login with this one email and password to check off summer reading activities for every attached reader account (including your own!)
    • There is no obligation to complete a summer reading challenge once you are registered
  • By Phone: call us at 781-834-5535 for more information! 

First Lady & Blades Registration Challenge: 

 From July 1 to August 14, if all of our summer reading challenge registrations combined reach at least 250 readers, we will be entered into a statewide drawing for Bruins prizes which include in game experiences such as riding a Zamboni ride, high fiving the players, and sitting on the bench during pregame, as well as signed memorabilia including jerseys and pucks. We will update the number of registrations on our website every week. Let's go Marshfield! Also, check out this list of Bruins players' favorite books!
