Don’t forget to visit us weekly to receive your rewards and enjoy our special programs throughout the summer.

1. Once you register, children and teens will choose how they will track their reading; whether by number of books, pages or minutes. Don’t forget to really challenge yourself this summer and set a strong goal!
2. Check out books from the library and READ! Log your progress in your reading log by writing the title of the book, pages or number of minutes read depending on what you chose.
