Children's Room Summer Reading

2020: Imagine Your Story

Welcome to our first ever online summer reading program! Children ages 0 to 12 are invited to register and log their reading everyday at nbfpl.readsquared.com. Each day that you log in your reading, you will earn 50 points! You can earn additional points by completing missions, such as reading out loud, acting out a story, or writing about yourself. For every 200 points, you will receive a digital badge and proceed to the next level. When you earn 1000 points, you will have completed all 5 levels and will receive a prize that you can pick up at the library in September.

Our Facebook Live Kick-Off Event took place Friday, August 7 at 12 noon; you can still view it even if you missed it live! It's up on our YouTube channel as well:
