How the Summer Reading Club works:

  • The children's summer reading club is open to all Fair Lawn Residents ages 0-12.
    (You must have a current library card to register.) 

  • Register in the Children's Room or through the link for ReadSquared found above.

  • Tracking can be done electronically or with a physical reading log,
    which can be printed from the website or picked up at the library.

  • Once registered: start reading! Pre-readers can be read to.

  • For every 20 minutes read, color in a step in your Ocean Log Book or track on ReadSquared. 

  • After your first 100 minute pick up a starter keychain. For every 100 minutes read you will
    received a new bead and move your diver to another area of the ocean.

  • Read all 1,000 minutes and receive a certificate and a book to keep forever.

  • Complete another 1000 minutes and be added to our "Starfish Reader" wall.
