Loudoun County Public Library now offers customers access to Beanstack, an online portal that provides free personalized recommendations of children’s books and apps. The new, online service is free to all customers with an LCPL library card. Customers can sign up here and use Beanstack from their home computer, mobile device, or in any of the Library’s branch locations.
 
Beanstack is an innovative new way to connect children and their families with books and educational apps that match each child's interests, age and reading level.
 
Every week, a book in the library’s collection will be suggested specifically for each registered child based on the information customers provide in their online profile. Recommendations are sent by email and are also available via an online profile that families can access anytime. In addition, each recommendation is accompanied by a learning guide containing helpful tips, background information, and activities to encourage engagement and critical thinking.
