  • Any reading done before June 6th DOES NOT COUNT towards summer reading challenges
  • You must have your initialed paper log OR have logged your reading online.
  • You must choose either paper or online for the duration of the program, you cannot go back and forth.
  • You may substitute one activity for a daily reading time 2 times each week OR do them all just for fun!
Program may not be repeated!  Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer.
NO PRIZES 
will be given after Saturday, July 30, 2022.

Prizes

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 5, and haven’t gotten any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 18 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until July 30, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER JULY 30
