  2. What if I don’t want to register online?  No problem!  Registration forms can be taken home and filled out.   Bring the form back and we will get your reader signed up.
  3. What is a Reader Packet?  The Reader Packet holds everything you need to keep track of the books your child reads during the summer, along with a calendar of all the events for each library during the summer.
  4. Why should I track how many books my child reads?  Reading gives your child the chance to earn prizes.  Prizes include free food, puzzles and toys.  Grand prizes will be awarded to a few lucky readers who complete their age level reading requirements.  Restrictions apply so ask your librarian for more information.
  5. How do I keep track of how many books my child reads?  Your Reader Packet has stickers and a sheet that your child marks to show how may books she or he has read.  Take the sheet to your chosen library to earn prizes.
