In case you missed Ms. Becky’s book talk, here is the recording. If you’re interested in these books, call the library at 708-258-3436 or place a hold online. The prize drawing is over, but the books are available for check out!
Get answers to questions like, “What’s the difference between the Pantheon and the Parthenon?” or “Can mushrooms actually help save the planet?” at How Stuff Works! Read articles, take quizzes, do puzzles and listen to podcasts on a variety of interesting topics.
Since we are moving to an all new Summer Reading platform this year, we thought we’d try to make your transition as smooth as possible. Here are some video tutorials on the different aspects of using ReadSquared. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the library or send us an email.
Just another quick rundown of how the points will work this year. For adults and teens: each book you read is worth 100 points, and each mission you complete is also worth 100 points.
The first 100 adults to read six books will win a Peotone Library Book tote.
Kids ages 0-12: every 100 minutes you read is worth 100 points, and each mission completed is also worth 100 points.
The program goal is to reach 1000 points by the end of the summer, but you are not required to stop at 1000 points. You can keep reading, and keep earning points.
Every 100 points earned can be traded in for a raffle ticket and entered into one of the prize drawings.
We are so excited about Summer Reading 2020! Thank you for joining us this summer!
UPDATE: There are also games you can play on ReadSquared. As you earn more points, more games are unlocked.
Want something you don't think we have? You can order almost anything from another library including music, video games, movies, and other books! You can search here or you can call the library and we will do it for you!
