What is the difference between registration, casual, and read-on your-own?

Registered Participants-
Registering ensures your child has a space in the program for the entire summer. If your child is unable to make a session, please let the library know in advance. Be sure to pick up your reading package after you have signed up online! You must sign up to be a Registered Participant.  You can only be a Registered Participant at one location. Please select your preferred location.

Casual Participants-
Don’t want to commit to attending programs on certain dates? Sign up as a Casual Participant to receive your reading package and come in whenever it’s convenient for you! Casual Participants will be allowed to join in as long as the session is not full. *You must sign up to be a Casual Participant for either of these locations. Same days and times as above.

Read-on-your-Own Participants-
Are you heading out of town for the summer or busy with other activities, but still want to track your reading and win great prizes? No problem! Register with us by indicating “read-on-your-own” on the online registration form and then pick up your reading package in the library. **You must sign up to be a Read-on-your-Own Participant.
