On Beanstack, please select the "Register as a Class or Group" option, then on the next screen, select "individually" to allow each participant's information to be entered. 

 

How to Claim Prizes: 

Daycares and other groups must schedule a pick-up time for prizes. Please see the following for pick-up location instructions:

 

Pick-up at Alfred Dickey Library:

Please contact the Alfred Dickey Library at 701-252-2990 to schedule a time to pick up your group's prizes at the Alfred Dickey Library. We ask that one person from the group come to claim the prizes, as there are limits on the number of people allowed in the library at this time. Please do not come to claim prizes without scheduling first, as we may not have enough prizes available without prior notice. 

 

Pick-up at Bookmobile:

Please contact the Alfred Dickey Library at 701-252-2990 to schedule a time to pick up your group's prizes during your next bookmobile stop. Please do not come to claim prizes for your group on the bookmobile without scheduling first, as we may not have enough prizes without prior notice.
