this summer & help us win the summer reading championship!
What is an e-log?
An e-log is an electronic book record that is stored on the computer. You can log into your record to enter the titles of the books you are reading and keep track of your reading progress and the number of red hot reader points you have earned!
No, a paper log is available upon request, but we’d like you to check out our new log before you decide. The format is fun and engaging and we hope motivating for your child to use. If you preview it and decide you would still prefer a paper log, please see Ms. Karen. The total number of red hot reader points earned will be calculated by hand at the end of the summer. However, you are responsible for your paper log! We are happy to store it here at the library, but if you choose to remove your log from the library and it is lost or you forget to enter titles on your paper log, points cannot be issued.
Studies have shown that continued reading practice over the summer months keeps your reading skills strong and helps you maintain your reading level during the long summer months. When students practice reading over the summer, it helps to avoid the frustration of the “summer slide.”
How does the e-log work?
Our Summer Reading Program is designed to encourage reading during the long summer months. As you enter the titles of books you are reading, the log stores the titles. It also keeps a running tally of the number of minutes read, gives you Energy Credits and calculates the number of red hot reader points you have earned. Every time you read for 30 minutes, you’ll earn a Red Hot Reader Point! Points will be saved in your e-log like a bank account. Every time a title is added, your account will grow.
Our September Book Cart has a collection of paperback and hard covered books at many levels. There are popular series, picture books, chapter books and a few non-fiction titles. You can view the cart and make purchases with your points during our September Store.
If you are saving for our September store, it is best to leave your points accumulating in your e-log account…because remember, your e-log is like a bank account. You make a deposit every time you read. You can also make withdrawals, but a word of caution; once we issue points they are like cash withdrawn from your bank. Red Hot Reader Points cannot be reissued if you lose them.
The days and times for our September store are as follows:
Friday, September 9th – 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Saturday, September 10th, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Registration for our summer logs will open on June 10th. You can enter your information on the registration log and your log will be ready and waiting for your summer titles. Paper logs will be available at the library by request only, beginning June 24th. Summer Reading e-logs are easier than ever, with just one log for all readers!
You may begin entering titles of the books you are reading beginning June 24th, the last day of school. This year, book titles can be entered right up until Sunday, September 4th.
