Guidelines for Success:

  • Sign up online with a valid library card and PIN number. (If you do not know your PIN number, call or come to the library for help.)
  • We want to know you and we want you to know us, so please come to the library in person to choose books and collect prizes, and always bring your library card with you.
  • Any books, ebooks or audiobooks from the Young Adult or Adult sections count as 1 book, but please only make one entry for every 3 magazines, manga, or graphic fiction you read. Please only count reading that is appropriate for your age and reading ability. Books from the Children’s Room that are also found in YA count as well.
  • Need help finding fun and interesting books? Check the YA Idea Book or ask the librarian or staff on the middle level of the library if you need suggestions on what to read, or check the Good Reads for YA section of the website.
  • Challenge yourself based on your own reading abilities.
  • Please come in person with your library card to collect your prizes. You must return overdue items and pay any late fees before you can collect prizes.
