Grownups, we didn’t forget about you!  Find out about the ARKS – Adults Reading Kids Stuff – Program and win prizes of your own!

Getting Started

Sign up in the Children’s Department or online.  You’ll receive a Reading Sheet to keep track of all that great reading you’re doing!

You can register any time throughout the program.  You can even count any reading you’ve done since the program began!

To find out when the program starts, check out our calendar.

Prizes

Kids, complete Reading Logs based on either the number of books that you read or the amount of time that you spend reading.

For each Reading Log that you turn in, you’ll receive Book Bucks that you can spend in our Library Store.  The Library Store is stocked with great prizes, like coupons for local restaurants and activities, candy, toys, and lots, lots more!

Book Bonanza

Every child that finishes all of the Reading Logs will get to pick out a free book from our Book Bonanza.  These are brand new books that are yours to keep!
