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