Read More, Win More!

Sunday, July 23 is the last day to turn in Summer Learning Logs.

Teens and adults can turn in up to 3 reading logs per week, so the more you read, the better your chances of winning. Here are a few tips to help you rack up 15 hours of reading/listening time, or 9 hours of reading/listening time if you attend 3 library programs.

5 Ways to Increase Your Chances of Winning

1. Listen to an audiobook 

If you don’t already listen to audiobooks, then this is probably the easiest way to increase your reading time. Listen on your commute, while working out, doing chores, or when you’re trying to fall asleep at night.

In addition to audiobooks on CD, we also have downloadable audiobooks available on hoopla, RBdigital (formerly OneClickdigital), and Kentucky Libraries Unbound.

Not sure what to read? See below for some suggestions!

2. Download an eBook or magazine to your phone

You know all that time you spend waste scrolling through social media feeds while at the doctor’s office, on work breaks, etc.? Why not read instead? 

You can download eBooks directly to your phone from hoopla, Axis 360, and Kentucky Libraries Unbound. Download or stream magazines from RBdigital.

4. Attend a library program

Can’t read all 15 hours? Cut down on some of those hours by attending library programs. For each log submitted, you can attend one library program in place of reading for twoHere are some of this week’s highlights:

5. Read Off Your Fines

July 23rd is also the last day to read off your fines. Spend as little as 15 minutes and as much as 2 hours per day reading in the library. For every 15 minutes you read, we’ll forgive $1.50 of your overdue fines. 

No fines + more time for your reading logs = a win-win!
