Earn one point for every minute you add to your reading log. Once you hit 900 points, you have earned a certificate to show your school and all your rewards, but you can keep reading for entries into our prize drawings.

How it Works:

  • Register for an account.
  • Log in to your account to record your reading and/or listening time.
  • Throughout the summer you can earn rewards!!
  • Play educational games and watch educational videos too.

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

  1. Sign up the whole family for the reading program. (sign up to track your reading online).
  2. Visit your local library again and again this summer. 
  3. Set a goal of reading 20 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through 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!
