FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to sign up again?

You should continue to use the family login by email address as well as the usernames and passwords for each family member that you created last year.  However, you will need to register each person for the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge once you have logged into the account. 

Do I have to confirm my email address?

If you would like to group your family under one login, you will have to confirm your email address. Individuals do not need to confirm their email. 

Do I need a library card to join?

Library cards are not required. Everyone is encouraged to participate!

How do I count my pages?

Some books don’t have page numbers, including picture books, manga, ebooks and audiobooks. Those books still count! You can look up the number of pages in the print copy on the library catalog or on Amazon to submit. Picture books are generally 32 pages. Books read together as a family count for each of the readers and listeners.

How do I log my pages and challenges?

Log your pages and challenges online between June 1st and July 25th, or drop off a paper reading log inside of the book drop at the library. Paper reading logs need to include your name, email address and/or phone number as well as the book titles with pages. 

Do I have to do the bonus challenges?

Challenges earn you more entries into our prize drawings but are not required to participate. 

When do I pick up my prizes?

You may pick up your prizes at the library August 3-31. 

 Are you a leader of a group of 10-25 people?  We welcome daycares, camps, schools, and group homes to work together as a team to earn prizes!  Contact us for more information.
