FAQ

Who can Participate?
Everyone!  Babies, toddlers, preschoolers, children, teens, and adults.  We want everyone to read and enjoy all of our events this summer!

How do I participate?
Sign up at the library, on the Read Squared App, or on the acl.readsquared.com website. 

How do I sign up just my kids?
Even if you do not plan to participate, you still need to create a parent account to register your kids. Just uncheck the box that asks if you will be logging and participating.  Once you create your account, then you can add kids accounts.

How do I keep track of my reading? 
By using the app or the website, you can add the books and/and or minutes that you read each day.  You can also play games, get book recommendations, and earn badges on ReadSquared.  

When can I sign up?
You can sign up anytime!  You won't be able to log your reading until May 25 when the program opens, but you can get signed up and get familiar with the app and website. Don't forget to stop by the library and get your goodie bag starting May 25. 

What counts as reading?
The skies the limit! You can meet your reading goals by ready any number of things - the newspaper, a magazine, a book, a repair manual, a website, an audiobook.  It all counts and can be logged towards your 1000 minutes. 

A 1000 minutes seems like a lot.  How much reading is that?
If you start at the beginning of the summer reading program on May 25, 1000 minutes is only about 20 minutes a day of reading!  Studies have shown that if you read 20 minutes a day, you encounter 1.8 million words a year. 

How can I find out about events?
Like and follow the Andrews County Library Facebook page.  We will put out a weekly calendar of events on Facebook. There is also a detailed calendar in the ReadSquared app, and you can check our website for updates.
