What's new for 2013?
This year, the children's program emphasizes the habit of reading regularly. Our incentives reflect this emphasis by rewarding readers for reading at least 20 minutes in a day. Readers earn incentives for every 10 days they read. We are also increasing the number of book-related incentives.
We know some of our readers love to track their minutes, and we hope those readers will continue to set high goals and let us know so we can celebrate their acheivements with them. They may also want to take the Star Reader Challenge, a two-part set of goals that encourage discovery-oriented reading behaviors. Star Readers will earn extra "Book Bucks" and also be recognized in a special library display.
Teen readers will count their time and earn prizes for every 5 hours of reading.
