CHILDREN: 
Babies-children going into 5th grade. You can earn badges by logging reading minutes. For each 2 hours of reading you log, you will earn tickets which you will enter in the end of program prize drawings. The more tickets you earn, the greater your chances of winning! You get to choose which drawings to place your tickets into.

The program also includes activity badges, as well as badges for submitting book reviews for books you have read. All of these badges earn you additional tickets.  Activity badges to earn include storytime programs, go outdoors to explore, read something different, do a grab and go activity kit and a book challenge. 

TEENS: 

Teens-Grades 6th - 12th, based on the grade you will be entering in Fall 2021.

You can earn badges by logging reading minutes. For each 3 hours of reading you log, you will earn tickets which you will enter in the end of program prize drawings. The more tickets you earn, the greater your chances of winning! You get to choose which drawings to place your tickets into.
