Summer can be a busy time, and many library patrons from babies to adults engage in our Summer Reading Program. READsquared is Midland County Public Library's online readers' advisory and reading program tool. Kids and adults can earn digital badges for logging the books they read.
The program keeps track of all the points a reader earns and notifies him or her when prizes are won for reading achievement. Educational games unlock as more points and badges are awarded and the missions offer points for completing tasks such as outdoor activities and art projects. Visit the Midland READsquared website to register or log-in.
If you would like a paper reading log, we have those available at the Centennial Library, too.
