How summer reading works for grades  6-8:

  • Track reading minutes and complete activities online.
  • Don’t want to track online? No problem! Pick up a paper Reading Tracker from the library to fill in as you read. When it's all colored in, bring it to the library (and pick up another one if you'd like!).
  • Read for 60 minutes, log your minutes, and earn a virtual raffle ticket. 
  • Complete an activity and earn a virtual raffle ticket. When you read for an activity, track those minutes because they count too!
  • We will release two new activities every Thursday, so log in often for more chances to earn raffle tickets! 
  • We'll have raffle prize drawings every week! All winners will be notified by phone.
  • Raffle prizes include: lego sets, LED light strips, bike lights, remote controlled cars, binocular adventure kits, and more!
  • Last day to log minutes and complete challenges is SUN, AUG 1, by 6 p.m.
