Youth Summer Reading
Welcome to Summer Reading 2022!
Imagine Your Story with our Virtual Summer Reading program this summer!
Download the ReadSquared app for free from your app store. The app will go live June 2nd, and the program concludes July 28th. Kids will earn 100 points for every chapter book read, and 50 points for each picture book. Ebooks and downloadable audio work too. If you prefer, you can log points with 1 minute reading equaling 1 point. Just log your reading on the app, and earn a virtual badge for each 100 points and finish the program at 1000 points. Along the way you will collect Brag Tags (What are Brag Tags? See picture!). At registration you will receive a ball and chain necklace or keychain to collect your brag tags all summer long. Children not yet reading on their own may count books read to them. Once you've completed the program and logged 1000 points, print your completion certificate from the app. The completion certificate will serve as your ticket to the Summer Reading Pool Party!
