  • Any reading done before June 3rd DOES NOT COUNT towards summer reading challenges.
  • You must have your initialed paper log OR have logged your reading online.

  • You may use Junior Fiction (JF), Junior Graphic Novels (JG), Tween Fiction (TW), Tween Graphic Novels (TWG), or magazines.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Your adult can get Libby for free through their app store.  Learn how to use it at our Downloadables page or have your adult come talk to a librarian.
  • Each Trailblazer Reading Goal has additional activities or challenges you can choose to do in place of TWO 20-minute reading sessions; each one may be used only once per challenge. You could do them all for fun!  In Beanstack, make sure you log 20 minutes of reading under the “LOGGING” badge area for each additional activity completed! 
  • Then… come to the Madison Library District lobby when you have completed an Trailblazing Tweens Reading Goal to receive a prize. You can collect a new prize every two weeks!

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 1, 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 15 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until July 27, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER JULY 27
