Everyone will be asked to read for 20 minutes minimum a day. Participants will log the number of hours spent reading online or on paper logs.
To set up your online account, go directly to the Teens: Dig Beneath the Surface site and choose Sign Me Up. You can also go to the Library's homepage and click on the Summer Reading Dig Into Reading link. Click on the program you are interested in, either teens or adults, and begin filling out the registration form. Parents, you can set up one account and register your children under one login if needed!
Set up a user name and password. Once you have filled in all of the information, start logging hours!
If you do not have a home computer, don't worry! You may use the Library's Catalog computers to register and keep track of your reading, or you may stop at the Library Reference Desk to sign up on a paper form.

As you read over the summer, you earn "Book Bucks!" The more Book Bucks you earn, the bigger the prizes you can receive! Awards of Book Bucks are given every time a participant completes 2.5 hours of reading and/or participating in other aspects of the program, such as attending teen nights. Participants can also save their Book Bucks until the end of the Summer Reading Program to get one big prize!
To cash in your Book Bucks, come to a regularly scheduled Library program for the full range of prizes. Or, if you are looking to cash in on a non-program day, stop at the Reference Desk to look at a limited selection of prizes.
All logs need to be finalized and prizes claimed by August 23rd, when the Book Buck Store closes!
