Summer Reading FAQ


When can we start logging minutes/books?

Anytime starting .  Make sure to log each week by Thursday evening in order to be entered into the weekly drawing held each Friday.


My child is too young to read by herself. Can he/she still participate? Yes, children as young as birth can be read to by adults or older siblings! For children not yet reading independently, we recommend reading with an adult. Assist your child with reading by taking turns, though you as the adult will do most of the reading.


Both the Junior and Readers level’s want my child to read for time. Does that mean they have to read only books? No, if your child enjoys reading magazines, graphic novels and graphic non-fiction, instruction, and newspapers can count time for those too!

Read to siblings.


Will we earn prizes for reading? Yes, we are extremely fortunate to have many local businesses as sponsors.
