 Summer Reading Plans for 2021!                                                                                            

Things are a little different this year, but no one has to miss out on Summer Reading! We have two options for logging your reading time this year:

  1. our traditional weekly printed “Book Bingo” Reading Log with reward pickup, OR
  2. an online reading log option with digital badge rewards and in-person reward pick up.

We are also giving away free craft kits so that everyone can follow along on either our Facebook page or through our website (if you don’t use social media). We will have live and recorded online activities, so be sure to pick up our calendar or check our website Events Page. Sign up and start reading today!

Signup - Begins May 1, 2021!

All readers must sign up through our BookPoints website here: https://slp.millingtonpubliclibrary.org/

For families, we suggest that a parent/guardian sign up for a single account, then you can add each child as a reader on that account. Each reader’s progress will be individual and kept separate.

***Is the computer not your friend or don’t have one? Our friendly staff can register you and your family at our service desk in person. No problem!

Online BookPoints Reading Log Details

To track you reading you now have two options: online or on paper.

If you’re ready to go digital, you can log your reading on the BookPoints website. Every 20 minutes spent reading earns 5 points toward a digital badge. Every badge is redeemable for a reward, just stop by the library to pick them up! In addition to the reading log, you can also post reviews and photos to share what you’re reading with other Millington readers.

If you would prefer to track your reading the old fashioned way, our printed weekly “Book Bingo” Reading Logs will still be available for pick up at the library starting June 8. We can sign you up to participate when you pick up your first log sheet. You can also print your reading logs and activity pages at home from the links below! Return your sheet at the end of each week for a new reward. No matter how you choose to participate, all Summer Reading Program participants will be entered to win our Grand Prize Drawing!

  • Logs and pages will be available in June!

Getting Books

We are open, and each cardholder can check out up to 20 books at a time. You can also read books you have at home! Don’t forget, graphic novels and audiobooks count, too!

Don’t want to come inside? Try the Libby app! Thousands of free eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines are available to checkout, free to all library cardholders. For more information check out our eBooks Page.

We will also continue offering curbside pick-up for all your library material and summer reading prizes. Please pull up by the east side of the building beside the book drop and call (901) 872-1585 to let us know when you arrive!
