How do I register my child?
— Sign up online here: 
Warm Up With a Good Book Sign-Up
— At the Children’s Desk in the library.

* Do we have to write down the names of books read?
— No!  Unlike our Summer Reading Program, you just keep track of every day that your child reads or listens to books.

* Can we start reading before January 2?
   — Of course you can read every day!  BUT we ask you to start counting days for THIS program on January 2.

* Do we have to bring the reading log in to claim rewards?
   — Please do!  If yours is lost or damaged or eaten by the dog, let us know, and we’ll get you a new copy. You can fill in the days you’ve already read.
