The Kids Program is for ages 0 to 11. Choose your preferred way to log reading:

  • Earn 1 point for every book logged
  • Earn 2 points for every 30 minutes of reading logged
  • For every 5 points earned, you will receive a drawing entry. Earn up to 6 drawing entries total!
  • Collect a FREE book bag once you've earned 10 points!
  • Completion packets contain a certificate, coupons from area vendors, a FREE book of your choice, and a little something extra too!
  • Participate in fun, kid-friendly activities to earn lots of fun virtual badges!

We also offer a paper version of our reading programs for those who prefer not to track their reading online, though we recommend self-tracking through Beanstack for the full experience. Ask for a paper book log at the Children’s Services desk.
