2021 SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Read, earn prizes, and participate in special programs in the park all summer long! 

Caldwell Public Library staff reads to their pets to gear up for an animal-filled summer with Tails and Tales.

Registration closes July 24, 2021. 

REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS

Register for Summer Reading with a ReadSquared account. You can log in or create an account by clicking the button below. Here are a couple of tips for getting started: 

  • If you are participating in the Ultimate Book Nerd Reading Challenge, you already have an account. Unfortunately, our digital system does not allow you to register for multiple programs at once. To work around this, you will need to create a “child” account that is linked to your own account so you can participate in the challenge. Need help? Let us know! 

  • Once you have your account set up, you can see our upcoming events, as well as the challenge you are registered for. To enter data, click on the “Missions” tab. 

Registration is closed. Please return your completed reading logs by August 15 to redeem your prizes.

READING LOGS

You can log all of your reading digitally through your ReadSquared account. Prefer a paper log? You can pick one up from the library or download one below. Reading logs are available in both English and Spanish.
