*PARENTS Please use the Reading Log in a way that best suits the needs of your individual child. Help your child to set a goal of recording time spent reading or listening to books, pages read, or titles of books. If your child is already a motivated reader, you may choose to require additional time, pages or books from what the library requires. Children may choose to count time listening to someone read out loud to them, including listening to books on compact disc. Choose to collect the prizes we offer, or include your own reading incentives, such as a special activity for the whole family or time spent alone with a parent.
PRIZES (June 15 to August 15)
Reading Motivators available June 15 through August 15 while supplies last. Please remember to check expiration dates on gift certificates.
When readers in Kindergarten through Adults complete their Reading Log, they may continue to read to earn a chance at even more prizes in a Random Drawing. The drawing will be held at the end of the summer and winners will be notified.
