Have Book, Will Travel
Summer 2013 Reading Game
Let books take you on a reading adventure this summer with our reading game, “Have Book, Will Travel,” for infants to 4th-grade graduates.
Fill in one square of your reading log for every 10 minutes you read or listen to books. Read 100 minutes to earn a prize. When you finish (by Aug. 15), a prize book awaits you, thanks to funding from the Library Friends.
To Get Started
Register anytime starting June 1. Register and get your log at the Main Library or Douglass Branch, or register online.

Spy a Good Book
Spring 2013 Reading Game
Read books or magazines, or listen to a story. Each day you read 20 minutes, color in one magnifying glass on your reading log. When you reach 5, 10, 15, and 20 days of reading, take your log to the Children’s Desk or the Douglass Branch Library for a special stamp. If you finish 25 days, take your log to the library, and we’ll enter you in our monthly prize drawing.
Register and get your log at the library, or register online anytime, starting January 2.
