Program Overview

All programming and logging for SRP 2020 was virtual.  We distributed starter kits and craft bags. Instead of paper reading logs, we used ReadSquared to track participation.

With ReadSquared participants

  • logged their reading

  • earned badges

  • were entered into prize drawings

  • accessed virtual programming

  • reviewed books

  • played mini-games

  • completed missions

  • and more 

To track community reading, staff created a gallery of storybook characters in our East Windows that we added to each week.

Our virtual programming included these online programs: 

  • Weekly Storytime with Mrs. Katie

  • James Wand Spy Magic

  • Rochelle’s Music programs

  • Book clubs for adults or teens

 

Missions in ReadSquared also included these fun at home activities:

  • arts and crafts

  • science experiments

  • fitness challenges

  • scavenger hunts

Every 100 points earned through reading and completing activities earned participants a Level Badge in ReadSquared. All pre-k, children, and teen participants received a brag tag for each level they attained, and all participants received an entry into bi-weekly prize drawings and into the grand prize drawings at the end of the program.

Biweekly prizes included:

  • toys

  • books

  • travel coffee cups

  • art supplies

  • and more 

Grand prizes included:

  • gift certificates

  • scooters

  • bubble machine

  • custom tote bags

  • Imagine Your Story T-shirts
