Find Your Team
Red Hot Kid Readers: Red Hot Readers Rock! The reigning champions of summer reading are ready to take on the teens and the adults in the community. Whether you are a pre-reader who listens to books, a new reader or an experienced reader, if you are a kid, join our team and get reading. The summer slide will be history in this community of readers! Everyone else can try, but we are red hot & ready to read this summer!
Teen Green Dragons: Teens come together to eat up the competition! The adults or children don’t stand a
chance against these mighty teens, because when teens compete, they win! Anyone entering grades 6 thru their freshman year of college, or anyone in non-traditional schooling aged 10 – 18, is eligible to join the Teen Green Dragons.
Title Wave Adult Readers: Adults are the role models of the community, the pillar, and the guiding hands, but that won’t stop them from washing away the competition! Adults who read show teens and children how important it is to always exercise your brain. Be a role model, and show the children in our community how important literacy is!
Log Every Minute You Read
We don’t care if you are reading novels, magazines, comics, newspapers, or online fan fiction, it’s all reading, and it all counts for your team! Audio books count for teens and adults in this competition, but not for children. However, there are some great on-line reading challenges for kids that are fun and can be added to your reading log…so check them out!
Logging online is easy, just use the link for your team above to get started. We have also have expert volunteers at the library to help you with signing up and logging online.
If you don’t want to log your minutes online, you can pick up one of our paper reading logs at the Circulation Desk. Log your reading time on your log, and hand it in at the library to add your points to your team’s total.
Check the Leader Board and your team’s progress by watching the team towers get constructed at the library to see how your team is doing!
Who’s on My Team?
We want everyone in our community reading, so everyone in Pawling should come down to the library and sign up for the Reading Rally. You can check out the roster of reading stars at the library if you want to see who’s signed up for your team.
Ice Cream Sundae Party
The winners of the Pawling Reading Rally will be honored at our Ice Cream Sundae party on Saturday, September 9th at 12 pm. All participants are invited to this Celebration of Literacy, where the awesomeness of our sundaes will be determined by how much reading we do as a community.
