How to Sign Up

Beanstack is easy to use and available both online and as a mobile app. Get started by visiting our Osceola Library Beanstack website at osceolalibrary.beanstack.org to create your account. You can also register through the app (find out how under "Get the App").

Have your Library Card ready and choose how you would like to register (as an individual, registering a child, registering a family or group) and then complete all required fields (marked with *) in the online form. If you do not have a Library Card, visit your local branch to sign up today! (How Do I Get a Library Card?)

Note: An email address is required, if you do not have an email address you will need to create one first then come back to register for Beanstack. 

Once registered, you can access your account online or in the app by signing in with your username and password. 

Get the App

Click the links below to find the free app in your Apple App or Google Play store under the name “Beanstack Tracker" and select "Get" or "Install."

Beanstack in Apple App Store Beanstack on Google Play Store

Once downloaded, open the app and follow the simple step-by-step prompts to create an account for yourself, your child, or your family/group. If you've 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.

Be sure to have a valid email address and your Library Card ready before starting the registration process. If you do not have an email address, you will have to first create one and then reopen the app in order to register. If you do not have a Library Card, visit your local branch to sign up today! (How Do I Get a Library Card?)

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 "Osceola Libraries" in the search option. Otherwise the process is the same as registering on the website. All fields are required except for phone number. 

Troubleshooting

If at any time you need help with Beanstack, please visit their Helpdesk and type in your question. If you can't find your answer there, our Youth and Adult Programming staff would be happy to assist you!
