ON YOUR MARK, GET SET... READ!

Program starts June 10th

Once you register here, you can start logging the time you spend reading!
Each time you read 100 minutes you will receive a raffle ticket which you can use to try to win a prize!
Prize winners will be picked Tuesday August 23rd*


 Our new online reading program is set up to be like a video game!

When you register, you will be asked what level of game difficulty you prefer (easy, medium, hard)

The levels only apply to the games in the on-line program, not your reading level!

You can change the game difficulty at any time in your account settings.

You will earn points and you can level up your character as you read more!

There are also challenges that you can do to earn extra raffle tickets!!!

We hope you have fun exploring the new program!




FAQ:
Q: What books can I read, and do they have to be library books?
A: You can read any books, fiction, non-fiction, audio books, e-books, and magazines. Books do not have to be from the library, and there is no required list of books!

Q: I don't have a computer at home, can I still participate?
A: YES! If you do not have access to the internet from home you can still participate. You can register at the library, and keep track of your reading time on paper. Then bring your list to the library and we can help you enter it into your reading log online.

Q: My child doesn't know how to read yet, can they still participate?
A: YES! Any time your child is read to can be counted as reading minutes. If you have older children who read to younger children it counts as reading time for both of them!

Q: Why do I have to give my (or my child's) birth date?
A: To comply with The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we are required to ask anyone under the age of 13 to provide a parent/guardian email address. Read more about this policy here.

Q: Who do I contact if I have questions or problems?
A: Contact the Townsend Public Library by phone (978)597-1714 or email

*Note on prizes: (Prizes must be picked up in person no later than September 15th, 2016.
Children cannot win more than one raffle prize.)
