Welcome to Way Public Library's Children's Area
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
REGISTER ONLINE! Starting Monday, June 1 through Saturday August 1, children ages 0 to 10 years old may sign up for the Summer Reading Club at www.children.waylibrary.info.
READ! Books, magazines, graphic novels and even listening to books on CD...it all counts toward summer reading! Read at your own pace and track the number of minutes you read all summer long by signing into your account at www.children.waylibrary.info.
EARN PRIZES! Prizes will be awarded to everyone that reaches the 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000 minute milestones. Digital raffle tickets will also be earned for every 30 minutes read.
KEEP READING! The more minutes you read, the more digital raffle tickets earned, and the better your chance to win a Kindle Fire Kids Edition at the end of the summer!
