When you sign up for Summer Reading you will receive a reading log and stickers. You put 1 sticker on your log for every picture book you read or 1 sticker for every 20 minutes of a chapter book that you read.

 

When you fill up your log, bring it to the library and you can pick out a prize and get a new reading log to fill out! You can fill up as many reading logs as you can this summer!
