Track and Log Your Reading! 

Kids and teens –track the books you read or listen to this summer (books read on-line and during virtual story times count, too!)  You can download and print a form from our website (choose the “Track Your Reading Here” button on our website – you may use any form for any age) or create your own list at home.  In order to receive a prize, you must read/listen to at least 10 books or 100 pages.

Beginning June 15th, Report Your Reading and Choose a Prize

Once a week, click on the “Report Your Reading” button on the website.  Complete the short questionnaire via the library’s website to report your reading (no need to report the titles) and choose a prize online.  Your prize will be kept for you in a bag with your name on at the library until we open for curbside pickup and/or until you feel comfortable picking it up.  If you do not have access to a computer, you may drop your reading log off in the book return and we will save prizes for you!  Kids reading more than the minimum 10 books or 100 pages will receive tickets to try to win a larger prize!
