Minutes Per Week Chart

Minutes Per Week Chart

Not sure how many minutes to read each week? Need a little help choosing a weekly reading goal? Use this handy chart as a guide:

We want you to succeed! Was last week's reading goal a little too much? (or was it too easy?) You can adjust your goal lower or higher for this week!

Instructions for Children age 0-8

How to Participate

Set a weekly reading goal, READ, and earn prizes!

1. Sign up and get a Reading Log. Signing up is easy! All we need is your first name, last name, and age.

2. Keep track of the time you spend reading on your Reading Log, whether you read by yourself or someone reads to you. Color in one space-themed symbol each week after you've read the number of minutes (or hours, chapters, titles, pages, however you like to measure!) you've chosen to read as your goal for each week. Choose a number of minutes that you feel would be a good challenge for you, but not so many that you get discouraged. If the number of minutes you've chosen seems too high or too low, you can choose a different amount of time for next week. You do not need to write down any of the titles of the books you've read on your Reading Log, but you can use the blank lines on the back of your reading log to record titles if you'd like to. We would LOVE to hear about some of your favorite books!

3. Once a week, take your Reading Log to your local Public Library branch and show them how much reading or listening you’ve done and you’ll receive a prize (Limit one prize per person per week.) 

4. Almost any kind of reading you'd like to do counts! Books? Great! Graphic Novels? Awesome! Magazines? Super! Audiobooks or books downloaded and read on a digital device? Fantastic! What doesn't count? Texting, tweeting, or other activity on social media platforms.
