Beanstack Training Videos – Learn how to use Beanstack!

  1. Go to the Library’s Beanstack URL:

https://bataviapubliclibrary.beanstack.org/

*Tip* Multiple readers can be added to the same account, even if they are registered for different programs.

  1. Decide who will be the “Account Creator” – meaning that person’s sign-in information will be used to access all accounts registered. 
    *Example*If a parent wishes to sign a child up for a reading program, they may make the child the “Account Creator” and register themselves for the Adult program as a “Reader” OR the parent may sign up for the Adult program as the “Account Creator” and add children as “Readers”. Both the “Account Creator” and “Reader” will use the same sign-in information.
  2. Account Creator: Select the red Register button. Your first name, last name, year of birth (necessary due to age restrictions for programs), and a password are required for registration.
  3. Once the Account Creator selects the “Next” button, Beanstack will ask if you would like to register another adult (select ‘yes’ or ‘no’) and then whether you would like to register another child (select ‘yes’ or ‘no’). 
  4. A green band at the bottom of the screen will alert you that you are successfully registered.

Now you’re ready to start exploring Beanstack!

How to sign up

Beanstack is easy to use and available both online and as a mobile app. Get started by visiting our Batavia Public Library Beanstack website at https://bataviapubliclibrary.beanstack.org/, create your account. You can also register through the app (find out how under “Get the App”).

NOTE: To register for Beanstack you must have:

  • either a valid Batavia Library card or a child that attends a Batavia school.
  • an email address. If you need help getting an email address or for other questions, please contact the library at 630.879.1393 ext. 270 (Adult Services) or 640 (Youth Services) and we will assist you.
  • Once registered, you can access your account online or in the app by signing in with your username and password.

Get the App

Find the free app in your Apple App or Google Play store under the name “Beanstack Tracker” and select “Get” or “Install.”

Once downloaded, open the app, and follow the simple step-by-step prompts to create an account for yourself, your child, or your family. If you have already created your account through the website, you can skip this step and just sign in to your existing account with your registered username and password.

Registering on the website vs. through the app: Since the app does not use our direct website link, the first prompt in creating your account is selecting “Find Your School or Library” and entering “Batavia Libraries” in the search option. Otherwise, the process is the same as registering on the website. All fields are required.
