Welcome to Summer Reading 2022!
Summer Reading is for all ages and runs June 18 – August 13, 2022. Complete activities all summer long to earn badges. After earning your first activity badge, you get a free t-shirt (while supplies last), plus, drop a ticket in the prize drawing of your choice. Earn the next three badges for one additional ticket each! Grand prize drawings take place after the end of Summer Reading in August. Download the Beanstack Tracker app for Android or iOS, or visit https://stmalib.beanstack.org to get started!

More to Explore
June 17 – September 9, 2022
The “More To Explore” Program encourages all community members to get outside and explore the amazing parks, historic sites and farmers’ markets that St. Mary’s County has to offer! When you visit a site listed in the challenge, look around for a green “More to Explore” marker. Near each marker you will find a “secret code” (hint: it’s usually a fitness vocabulary word). Enter the secret code on Beanstack to log your visit. When you’ve visited at least 12 sites between June 17 and September 9, 2022, you’ll be entered into a grand prize drawing! Can’t use Beanstack?
