How It Works

Sign-up Tips & Tricks

One email per account
Like most online accounts, one email address provides you with one account.

Multiple members under one account
Sign yourself up first, and then add additional readers.  

What you’ll be asked for
The basics — your name, email, age group, preferred branch, etc.  

Already have an account?
Wonderful. Sign in (if needed, resetting your password is easy) and make sure everything is up-to-date.

What You Can Read

Read anything
Anyone at any age can read what they like, from audiobooks to zines.

All items counted the same
Each books counts as one item read, whether it’s a picture book or 30 minutes of reading War & Peace.

Double entries for reading to kids
Reading a book to a child counts as a book read for them and for you too.

Log everything you read
Add it to your activity sheet or login and click the green button in the upper left.
