Summer Reading
To sign up for summer reading, register here, at READsquared. This website allows you to track time read through a point system, as well as offers reading lists and games for all ages. If printed timecards are more your style, stop by the library to pick one up! 
Each hourly milestone offers a reward, so make sure to stop in the library for your prize. You’ll be automatically notified on READsquared, or if you have a physical timecard, when you reach the weekly hour goal! This goal is 3 hours a week for teens and adults and is adjusted down by age range.
