How to Record Your books
1. Take your reading log home. Keep your reading log in your bag so that it doesn’t get lost! If you lose the reading log, you will lose what you’ve recorded.
2. Each week write your books down, and bring your reading log back to the library to be stamped. You will get a ticket to spend and a prize coupon to redeem at a local restaurant or business. Reading double your weekly goal will earn you a chance in the Red Ticket Drawing.
3. The library will keep a record of how many weeks each child finishes. All 6 weeks must be completed to be eligible for the final party.
4. On the last week, leave your reading log at the library so that pages can be counted and winners determined.
5. Please ask a library staff member if you have ANY questions.
