Summer Reading Club is all online in 2020 and starts Monday, June 1 through READsquared!  Earn points by logging minutes read, book titles read or by completing missions.  Make sure to earn your points by Friday, July 31.  

Online not your thing?  We have paper reading logs available for Youth participants from babies through 12th grade.  Adult participants may call the Reference Desk at 214-509-4905 for assistance setting up their READsquared account and log their titles.

Getting started is easy.  

  • Register online or download the READsquared app, available on App Store and Google Play.
  • Earn points by reading, storytelling or listening to stories.  You can also earn points by completing special Missions.
  • Get digital badges along the way.  Try to collect them all!
  • Complete the Summer Reading Club program by collecting 1,000 points.

This summer programs will be hosted virtually.  Join us for crafts and how-to videos on our Facebook and Instagram and make sure to check out our Take & Make craft kits.  We have kits available for Families (grades K-3), Preschool (ages 3-5), Tween (grades 4-6), and Teen/Adult ( ages 12 and up).  Registration for kits is required.

What Counts in READsquared?

Books, eBooks, audiobooks, eAudiobooks, comics, magazines, eMagazines, newspapers, graphic novels, manga, blogs -- basically anything you can get your hands on to read!  You can also count books read to you or that you read to your kids.  Please see the specific reading program level for the number of points each item counts towards the 1000 point goal.

Happy Reading!
