Put reading first
Set a goal of reading 20 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread throughout the day. Use the online games and track your reading to unlock cool new game levels, activities and more!

  1. Sign up to track your reading online, or visit the Children's Department for help with registration.
  2. Visit the Library again and again this summer. 
  3. Make reading fun all summer long! 

It’s simple! 

Earn points and collect badges for doing all kinds of stuff over the summer, like reading, going to library events, attending story times, playing online games, completing take-home activities, and other things.

Once you hit 1600 points, you earn a free book and a certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate?
Children ages 0-11.  Children too young to read by themselves are welcome to participate by having a parent or caretaker sign them up, read to them, and do activities with them.

Can I count books that I read on my computer or e-reader?
Of course!

Can I count time that I spend reading to my kids?
Absolutely! We love when you read to your kids!

Can I count audiobooks?
You bet!

Can I count the time that I spend reading a book even if I don’t finish it?
For sure! Ten minutes is ten minutes.

Can I join the program after its official start date?
Yes! And if you can remember any reading that you’ve done after the official start date (June 1, 2017), you’re welcome to go back and count that.  The earlier you register and start reading, the more likely you are to reach the 1600 point goal.

Can I count reading that I’ve done before the official start date?
No.  Please count only reading you’ve done within the official dates of the program.

What about secret codes?  How do I get one? 
Each time you attend an event, go to a story time, add good deeds to our wall quilt, complete a take-home activity, come to a Friday Code Club meeting, or attend a Lego Friday, you will receive a secret code.  Just type that code into the secret code box on your dashboard and you will receive points towards your goal!
