how do i log the time it took me to read a book?
Thanks for asking! Get to your Summer Reading Program module - you can use the link here, or from the main catalog, whatever you prefer - and sign in to your Summer Reading account using your library card number or username and your 4-number PIN.
Once you're signed in, you may or may not see what I call your "dashboard" - it will be a white space that shows your profile image, a couple buttons that say "Set reading goal" and "Add reading time", and links to your shelves, lists, quizzes and badges. If you do not see your dashboard when you first sign in, look at the top of the screen for the small, round icon with your profile image between the program banner and the words "Take a Quiz" and "Earn Badges." Click or tap on that to toggle the dashboard open and closed.
Click on "Add reading time" to bring up the SRP time clock. Add your reading time in increments of hours or minutes, down to the nearest 5min and up to 9:55 at once. As you have more time to add, come back to the same "Add reading time" button to continue tracking your reading time. Once you hit 10 hours your SRP completion badge will trigger and you'll be ready to claim your completion prize for the Kids or Teens program. That doesn't mean you have to quit reading, though! Keep tracking your reading time all summer and look for other opportunities to claim badges and share your reading experience.
