Modern user experience that gets measurable results, for readers of all ages.

Beanstack offers the web and mobile app experience that leads to the most registrations, active readers, and completions. We're constantly improving to meet changing design and accessibility standards.

Ready-made reading challenges to help drive measurable results all year long.

We design new challenges that your school or library can turn on every month to keep readers engaged with your library. This include our annual #WinterRead previously sponsored by Mark Cuban and Penguin Random House.

Time-saving administrator experience with robust reporting and customization.

Design your reading challenges the way you want, and get the insights you need. Beanstack is the most flexible reading challenge platform — based on thousands of reading challenges from libraries and schools. You'll be amazed at all you get from it.

Personalized customer service with 24/7 concierge support.

We start clients off with a love letter from our founders followed by an introduction to their personal client success manager. The process includes training, marketing support, and quality assurance. Our helpdesk is obsessed with responding lightning fast.
