Who can participate?  How do we track our reading time?

•

Babies, kids and teens may all participate! We know babies can’t read, but their caregivers can read to them, and that is very important too!

You have two options when tracking your reading: paper reading logs, or online reading logs. Paper logs may be picked up at the library at any time. Click "Online Reading Logs" to the right to track your reading online.

I heard there are prizes. Is that true?

Yes, it is true! Children and teens who read (or are read to) at least 15 minutes per day may select one book from our Prize Book Bin. They will also be entered in the weekly drawing to win a backpack filled with goodies. Backpacks are on display in our lobby.
