Log the time you spend reading!

You'll earn a brag tag for every 100 points you earn as well as extra prizes for reading 500 minutes, and 1,000 minutes. When you reach 1,000 points, you will earn your certificate, final prizes, and you will be able to pick a library book to be dedicated to YOU! You will also be entered to win an end-of-summer GRAND PRIZE! The more you read, the more chances you'll have to win!
