Reading for Others: Instead of paper logs for tracking reading and activities, the Library offers Beanstack, an online platform to record these asks. Beanstack also offers personalized book recommendations and specific tools for learning. Signing up can be done from a smart phone or other device. Beanstack offers a free, user-friendly app for Apple and Android devices.
As in years past, participants will read to earn books for patients at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. The Sanibel Public Library Foundation matches each book “earned” with a book for patients at the Children’s Hospital. Since its inception in 2012, participants have helped to contribute more than 11,000 books to the hospital. The Library's Summer Reading Program is funded in part by a grant from the Sanibel Public Library Foundation's Joan Hunt Cory Children's Fund. The Children’s Fund was established in 2008 to honor longtime library volunteer and supporter Joan Hunt Cory, who was also a 20-year Sanibel resident.
