“Imagine Your Story” is theme of Way Library’s Summer Reading Club

The staff at Way Library has completely re-imagined its Summer Reading Club for 2020, transforming it into an innovative and safe virtual experience. Although participants will not be getting together in person as originally planned, all ages are invited to sign up for “Imagine Your Story,” a special program of reading and virtual events inspired by fairy tales, folklore, and myths.

Children, teens, and adults can celebrate this year’s theme online by tracking their reading, playing games, unlocking digital badges, and earning raffle tickets for a variety of exciting prizes.

Registration is open now for the program which continues until July 31. Sign up at http://waypl.readsquared.com/ to get started.

Way’s Summer Reading Club is supported by the generosity of Way Public Library Foundation & Friends.

In addition to the reading club, summer programming will include online story times, Lego challenges, STEM activities, book discussions, craft tutorials, and more surprises—all carefully thought out to keep everyone safe and healthy while learning and having fun.

How the Adult Summer Reading Program works:

REGISTER ONLINE! Starting Monday, June 1st through Friday, July 31st, adults 18 years and older may sign up for the Summer Reading Club at waypl.readsquared.com or using the free READsquared app.

READ! Books, e-books, graphic novels and even listening to books on CD all count toward summer reading! Read at your own pace and track the number of books you read all summer long by signing into your READsquared account at waypl.readsquared.com or on the READsquared app.

PLAY BINGO! Complete 5 different activities in a row on your online Bingo card on READsquared to get a Bingo!

EARN POINTS! 1 book = 50 points. Log your reading on READsquared to earn points and complete Bingos to earn bonus points! Every 100 points will move you up a level. Complete all 10 levels or earn 1,000 points to finish the program.

UNLOCK BADGES! Unlock digital badges and fun mini games as you level up! You’ll also unlock 5 digital raffle tickets for one of the grand prizes for every level you reach.

KEEP READING! The more books you read, the more digital raffle tickets earned, and the better your chance to win one of the grand prizes at the end of the summer!
