Summer Reading is Winding Down

But, we still have a lot of things happening at the library! This afternoon, don’t miss the animals from ATLAS Education from 4:30-5:30, and just after that, our July Book Club chat is at 6:00pm. Saturday at 10am, join us for a safari Storytime hour if you missed it on Tuesday. Everything is free and open to the public, whether you’re signed up for summer reading or not!

After this week, we have one more exciting week of Summer Reading left! You still have plenty of time to log your reading and activities and get those book bucks (teens) or tickets (everybody else). We’ll be signing off on Summer Reading logs all the way up to the auction and grand prize day, Friday, July 26!

Do You Have Our Free App Yet, myLIBRO?

Just like last year, you are able to log reading and activities for the Summer Reading on our app, myLibro! If you need help or have questions, contact us. And if you don’t have our app yet, it’s free and it’s awesome! Just search for “myLibro” and choose Nortonville Public Library. You’ll log in with your library card number and pin (which we can change here if you don’t remember it).

You’ll have your account, checkouts, and holds, the whole library catalog to search and place holds on, plus our latest facebook posts and events, and the summer reading logs, all in one place! You can even manage other library cards in the app and toggle between accounts.

Summer Reading Information for Teens (6th-12th grade)

How the Teen Summer Reading Program Works:

Start logging and earning Book Bucks on Saturday, June 1.

You must be signed up for summer reading to start earning Book Bucks. You may spend your Book Bucks on prizes in the teen prize case anytime during summer reading, or save them for the teen prize auction (or do both!).

The Summer Reading Teen Prize Auction is Friday, July 26 at 3:30pm. Bid on prizes with Book Bucks you have earned. Prizes include gift cards, electronics, books, bath and body products, Squishmallows, and much more!

You do not have to be present at the auction to bid. If you are not able to attend the auction, see the front desk for a bidding sheet so a designated staff member can bid in your absence.

How to Earn Book Bucks:

Earn $1 in Book Bucks for each VISIT TO THE LIBRARY. Starting Tuesday June 6, visit the Front Desk and get $1 in Book Bucks just for coming into the library. Maximum $1 per teen per day.

Earn $5 in Book Bucks for an OUTSIDE ACTIVITY (fishing, playing a sport, visiting a museum, camping, etc). Maximum one activity per day.

Earn $5 in Book Bucks for every 60 MINUTES YOU READ & LOG ONLINE OR IN YOUR LOG BOOK. Books must be Middle Grade Level (5-8) and up. What counts: fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, manga, eBooks, comics, and audiobooks. You may also log time spent reading to a younger child or someone who needs assistance.

Earn $5 in Book Bucks when you participate in or assist with a SUMMER PROGRAM EVENT OR CRAFT.

Earn $20 in Book Bucks when you MEET THE TEEN SUMMER PROGRAM GOAL by reading for 600 minutes/10 hours. You may continue earning Book Bucks after you’ve completed the goal.

**Unused Book Bucks can be carried over from year to year, but are only good at the Nortonville Public Library.

**Book bucks are not real money and can only be used for summer reading at the Nortonville Public Library.
