Logging Minutes:Start by logging into your program using the same link you did to register. On your HOME screen you'll see the option to enter the title or author of the book, the number of minutes read, and whether you've finished the book.
On the home screen you'll also see optional challenges to participate in for more prizes and rewards.
As you progress in the game, the website will also display the points you've gained by entering minutes and what upgrades you've earned, as well as whether you've earned any prizes from our program.
Getting Prizes:Check your AWARDS tab to see what prizes you've earned, then stop by the library to collect your reward.
Most awards are given for every 5 hours, or 300 minutes that you read, but be sure to check out the additional challenges, too!
We will have a table setup with either staff or volunteers helping to distribute prizes throughout the summer. Simply give them your information and they will give you your prizes and mark on your account that you have received them.
We will have coupons, books, and little trinkets to give out throughout the summer as well as entries into prize package drawings of your choice.
