Where do we go once we're logged into the website to record our summer reading time?
Thanks for asking! Our Summer Reading Program setup is a little different this year. For the last few years, we had used SRP software that was developed by the same software company that maintains our catalog. In that system, your Summer Reading Program activity was connected with your primary library account, and you would sign in through what we call the "MyOPL" login that appears on the top right corner of every page of our new website.
That company no longer offers Summer Reading solutions, so we've moved our Summer Reading Program activity to a system called Beanstack. Access that system by clicking on the large Summer Reading Program banner on the front of our website, or go directly to https://omahalibrary.beanstack.org/reader365.
Once you're on the Beanstack page, look at the top right corner for a teal button that says "Sign In" or a control menu of three parallel lines if you're on mobile.
(There will be a separate username and registration process that is not directly connected to your library account, so go ahead and register if you haven't already. One of the advantages for families this year is that an adult can register as the main "Account Creator" and quickly add and manage "Reader" accounts for each of their children.)
Once you've signed in to Beanstack, look for the teal button that says "Log Reading and Activities" to get to the reading log and record your time. If you have multiple family members connected on the account, look for the button that says "Switch Readers" to move between their reading logs.
Don't hesitate to give us a call at 402-444-4800 or visit your local library if you could use an assist! Thanks again for asking, and thanks for using AskOPL.
