Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program at the Southwest Georgia Regional Library has begun! The program is for all ages including adults, and our library will be doing reading logs online through Beanstack. You can register now on the Beanstack app on your device or on the website at For each log you complete, you get a prize and an entry for the final prize drawing. All reading logs are due no later than July 10.

Using the Beanstack App:
Download the Beanstack app on your device. When it says “Does your School, Library, or Bookstore already use Beanstack,” click “Yup!” Register for our Summer Reading Program by searching "Southwest Georgia Regional Library." On the “Sign In” page, click on “Don’t have an account? Sign up” at the bottom of the page. Fill out the registration information.

Using the Beanstack Website:
Go to Click on “Register an Individual or Family.” Fill out the registration information.

How Beanstack Works:
After you create an account on Beanstack, add all of the readers in your family of all ages. Then register the readers for the appropriate challenge. Register child readers for the "Children Summer Reading Program Log" challenge and register adult readers for "Adult Summer Reading Program Reading Log" challenge.

Log your books or reading time by clicking on "Log Reading and Activities." For every 12.5 hours a child reads or 5 books an adult reads, you will receive a badge and certificate. When the library reopens to the public, come claim your prize for each completed log. Contact us at for help.

While the Library is Closed
Your library card still gives you access to free e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines at If you do not have a library card, we can issue you a temporary digital card.

GaDOE Parent Survey

Georgia Department of Education Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions and can be completed using personal computers, smartphones or iPads. (A Spanish version of the parent survey will be available soon.)  For parents that do not have access to the Internet, parents can sign on at the public library or you can contact the school’s office to set up a time to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey, because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.  Participation is not mandatory, but is highly encouraged.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.
