May 27 – August 6, 2021

Children ages 17 and under can sign up by visiting the Children’s Room or filling out the registration form on or after Thursday, May 27. Pick up or print out a Reading Record, and begin recording the amount of time you spend reading or that someone reads to you. Listening to audiobooks also counts.

Each space on the Reading Record equals ten (10) minutes of reading. Color one space for every ten (10) minutes spent reading. Read for 600 minutes/10 hours to receive a tote bag and a ticket to a Cleveland Monsters game; read for 1,200 minutes/20 hours to get a free book and a grand prize raffle drawing entry. Participants may complete one reading record.

The final day to enter is August 6. Prizewinners will be notified on or after August 9, 2021.
