Visit https://whiteplainslibrary.beanstack.org to sign up for the Trove’s online summer reading program. The program becomes active on July 2.
Read, log your reading, and be a part of summer activities and programs to earn points and prizes. While kids are having fun reading and being a part of our programs, they will also receive prizes for visiting the Trove for each 25 points earned. Points are earned for reading books (5 points per book) and attending Library events (different values depending on the program).
In addition to prizes throughout the summer, kids can earn points to enter the grand prize raffle drawing! Each Toddler–3rd grader who earns 400 points will be entered into the raffle for a fun, musical, prize! Each 4-6 grader who earns 350 points will be entered to win a Kindle Fire tablet!
There are two options available:
- You can register as the reader – a child logging reading and activities over the summer.
- You can register as an adult responsible for readers – with your child(ren) as readers connected to your account. This option is great for parents, caregivers, teachers, daycare providers – anyone who wants to help keep track of the reading and library activities of their child(ren).
When you add a reader (either yourself or a child) you will see the programs currently available to that person based on their age and grade. If the reader is a baby through grade 6, the Trove’s summer reading program will be available to select. If the reader is in grades 7-12, the Edge’s summer reading program will be available. Currently, there are no online reading programs available for adults.
If you need any help signing yourself or your child(ren) up for the program, please stop by the Trove!

Mayor Thomas Roach and the White Plains School District accepted the My Brother’s Keeper initiative August 10, 2016 to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and to ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. The MBK program was launched by President Barack Obama February 2014 to improve the lifelong outcomes of boys and young men of color. Since then, 250 communities across the nation have accepted this challenge.
