How does it work?

    1. Read for 30 minutes at a time.
    2. Color in one circle for every 30 minutes of reading.
    3. Come to the library when you have 10 circles colored in to have your photo taken for our Wall of Fame and receive a ticket for our GRAND PRIZE drawing!
    4. Keep reading! You can earn as many tickets as you like.

Have your grown-up check in with RTDL on social media to share what you’ve been doing! Save your reading log to show your teacher when you go back to school.
