June 1, 2016 - July 30, 2016 

Register starting June 1, 2016

Welcome to this year's Children's Summer Reading Program, "On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!"  This year’s program is all new, interactive and online. There’s a summer reading program for all ages, including adults!  Signing up is free and easy.  Click “register" below to get started.

Parents: To create a Family Account, register yourself first and then register your children under your account.  

If you do NOT want to create a Family Account, register each of your children individually.





It’s simple: Earn points and collect badges for doing all kinds of stuff over the summer, like reading, playing games, going to library events, and attending story times.

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

Wondering how to add family members, get badges, find secret codes, or play the games? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions.

How it Works:

  • Register for an account.
  • Log in to your account, record your reading, and explore other ways to earn points. 
  • For more details, click on the tab for your age group. 

Put reading first,
with 20 minutes a day spent reading or being read to this summer:

  1. Sign up the whole family for the summer reading program offered by Prescott Valley Public Library. (You can sign up to track your reading online or you can choose our paper option.)
  2. Visit the Library again and again this summer. Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read yourself or to your young child. Once you register you will also have access to exciting, age appropriate reading lists made available by our librarians. 
  3. 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!
  4. Make reading fun all summer long! 

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate?
Children of all ages, teens, adults — everyone!  Children too young to read by themselves are welcome to participate by having a parent or caretaker sign them up and read to them.

Can I count books that I read on my computer or e-reader?
Of course! It’s all the same to us.

Can I count time that I spend reading to my kids?
For sure! 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?
Absolutely! Ten minutes is ten minutes.

Can I join the program after its official start date?
You bet! And if you can remember any reading that you’ve done after the official start date (June 1, 2016), you’re welcome to go back and count that.  The earlier you register and start reading, the more likely that you will reach the 1600 point goal.

Can I count reading that I’ve done before the official start date?
Actually, we do ask that you count only reading you’ve done within the official dates of the pr
ogram.

What about secret codes?  How do I get one? 
Each time you attend an event, go to a story time, or come to a Lego™ Friday, you will get a slip of paper with a secret code written on it.  Just type that code into the secret code box on your home page and you will receive points towards the goal!
