It's easy! Just sign up and READ!
1. Sign up and get a Reading Log. Signing up is easy! All we need is your first name, last name, and age. You can print a Reading Log beginning May 14 when you use our easy online sign up portal (here), or you can pick up an already-printed Reading Log when you register in-person at one of our Public Library Branches beginning June 5.
2. Keep track of the time you spend reading on your Reading Log. For every hour you read, whatever kind of reading you like to do, mark off one whale tail symbol. If you fill up your whole Reading Log and would like another, you can ask for one at one of our Library Branch locations.
3. There won't be any weekly prizes given this year, but here's how you can still earn a prize: When you have all of your whale tail symbols marked off (remember, it's one tail for each hour you've read) bring your Reading Log to your local branch of The Public Library and turn it in. We'll then give you an entry form for a special prize drawing at the branch just for Teens, age 13-17.
4. Almost any kind of reading you'd like to do this summer counts! Books? Great! Graphic Novels or Manga? Awesome! Magazines? Super! Audiobooks or e-books downloaded and read or listened to on a digital device? Fantastic! What doesn't count? Just a few things: Texting, tweeting, or other activity on any social media platforms.
