Way back in December we announced a new reading incentive program called 100 Books Before Graduation. If you missed that post, here's a brief recap:
100 Books Before Graduation is a new reading program where students in grades 4-12 can log their reading and get prizes. The City Library has done reading programs in the summer for years, but each year we get requests for reading programs that can be done during the rest of the year or anytime.
The 100 Books program challenges you to read 100 books for fun, outside of school, before you graduate high school. 100 Books might sound like a lot, so that's why students can start this program as early as 4th grade. Some of you may finish early and decide to keep reading for more prizes, others will stretch the 100 books across the whole nine years. Each of you who participate will move at your own pace, but for every 10 books your complete you can get a prize from the library.
So, how do you sign up?
Starting tomorrow (January 23rd) you can begin this program. You can either stop by any library branch and ask for a 100 Books Before Graduation tracker, or log into Beanstack (our reading tracker) and sign-up there to log your progress digitally.
A few important points:
Here are just a few of the prizes you will be able to get as you reach each 10-book milestone:
There are over 10 different books to choose from for prize #5! Other prizes include candy, earbuds, reusable straws, enamel pins, book lights, and more!
If you have any questions about the program you can submit them here on our Contact page, or call the library at 801-594-8200.
*For younger students we have the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten and 200 Books Before 4th programs.
