The Round Rock Library Summer Reading Program is on this year!! The Library invites everyone to read this summer in their “Community Reading Program”. All ages are encouraged to join this year – children, teens, and adults!
The fun begins Monday, June 1, 2020 and lasts through August 1, 2020.
Read on to learn more details!
Round Rock Library Community Reading Program
Read and complete missions to unlock donations from Friends of Round Rock Public Library to two local service organizations: the Round Rock Area Serving Center and the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.
Many of the missions are also community-building activities.
How it works:
Step 1: Register online at roundrocktexas.gov/summerreading
Start with a brand‐new account in READSquared, the library’s online tool for tracking points. (Pro tip: Setting up a family account allows family members to update several readers at the same time.)
Step 2: Set a personal goal for reading
The default is set at 1000 points (about 16 hours of reading), but you can set your own goal this summer.
Step 3: Read (or listen to a reader/audiobook)
– Count either minutes or books ‐ ‐ 1 minute=1 point or 1 book=15 points
– It’s okay to switch from minutes to books and back again—count the way that earns you the most points.
Step 4: Record
– Log the time spent reading or listening from June 1– August 1.
– Earn even more points by completing missions* or submitting book reviews. Each mission or book review you log is worth 10 points.
*Missions are suggested activities that encourage either community‐minded behaviors or the use of online library materials.
Step 5: Reward
At 300‐point intervals, you will be entered in prize drawings for gift certificates the Friends has purchased from local long‐time sponsors. #OurTurnToGiveBack
At 1000 points, you will receive a Book Nook Buck redeemable for one item from the Friends’ Book Nook, which is the ongoing used book sale in the library.
And if we all reach 1 million points together, $500 will go to the Serving Center and the Animal Shelter!
The Community Reading Program runs June 1 – August 1, 2020.
