Registration opens Monday, May 23th
Logging books begins June 1st
Last day to log books is July 31st
Programming will be held at the Chelsea Community Center and the Chelsea Public Library. See detailed information below to know about times and locations of programs.
Register online with ReadSquared. Be sure to sign your child up for the correct age category.
Some craft events will require registration. You will be able to find those forms right here on this page once they are available.
ReadSquared is the web based program we use to track your progress in our summer reading program! Sign up HERE and start logging books in the program to earn points and win prizes! Be sure to check out the mobile phone app in your phone's app store!
This year, to earn points, you will log the number of books you have completed reading. We have broken this age group into two, 5-8 and 9-12. Be sure to register your child in the appropriate age category
To level up and earn a level prize:
5-8 yrs will level up every 15 books! Your total summer goal is 120 books. This shakes down to reading 3 PICTURE BOOKS a night for 5 nights a week. *PLEASE NOTE, if your reader is reading higher than the picture book/beginning reader level, they would do better in the 9-12 category.
9-12 yrs will level up every 3 books!
Your total summer goal is 24 books.
This breaks down to three CHAPTER BOOKS a week. *PLEASE NOTE, if your reader isn't reading chapter books yet, you can place them in the 5-8 category, prizes are the same, but the points system is different.
We have divided it this way to hopefully make earning prizes fair and achievable for all of our readers!
Once you complete the program, keep reading for the chance to win bonus prizes!!
