Summer Reading FAQ

May contain: wood


Do I have to Register through Google Forms?

Yes! It’s a lot easier than Beanstack. If you don’t have internet at home or want to sign-up in person you can do so during Library open hours. If you have any issues you can call us, 815-784-2627.

I don't have a library card, can I still sign-up?

Of course! Our Summer Reading Programs have always been available to patrons who don't have a library card.

Can I still do the programs if I'm not registered for Summer Reading?

Yes, you can. Registration for all events is broken into age groups, which can be found on the side.

Will there be participation tickets?

No. All raffle tickets will be based on hours read.

 Are You Requiring Masks for Outdoor Programs?

Per, the CDC guidelines we are recommending that all patrons wear masks and practice social distancing. But, we are leaving it up to the individual.

Other things to note! 

We have gone back to paper log books per patron request

We will NOT be using the Beanstack app this summer

Log books will be tracking daily reading. How much is read each day or for how long is determined by the participant and/or their parent/guardian.

Earn prizes and raffle tickets as you read your way through the log book and when you turn in your log book.
