Do I need a library card to participate?
No library card is required, however we highly recommend one so you can borrow library books and access the tremendous digital libraries on Hoopla and Libby!
Do I have to read only library books? Can I count books I own?
You may count ANY books you read, whether you own them or borrowed them.
Can I count time spent reading graphic novels, audiobooks, or ebooks?
Can I count time spent reading articles?
We encourage reading of all kinds, but for this program, we want you to count longer narratives like books, whether they are fact or fiction, regardless of format.
How do I log my reading?
You can find the Log page on the muncie.readsquared.com page or app and report your readings as you go, or you may wait until the end, as long as you do not miss the deadline of July 29.
If I participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program, may I count time spent reading to youth?
Yes, we encourage parents and caregivers to read to children, and that time may be logged in both Adult and Youth programs.
When will winners be chosen for the Adult Summer Reading Program?
We will randomly draw a list of winners on or about July 31, 2023. Winners must respond by August 7, 2023 or they may forfeit their prize.
Can I win more than one prize for the Adult Summer Reading Program?
By participating in the program and reading at least one hour, you will earn a participation prize. After completing 10 hours of reading, you will earn a completion prize, which includes a chance in the prize drawings. Each person may only win one prize drawing. After winning a prize drawing, your name will be removed from additional drawings.
How many chances to win can I earn for the Adult Summer Reading Program?
If you read 10 hours, you will earn one entry into the drawing. You may earn up to 10 entries by reading 100 hours total. After 100 hours your chances to win will not increase further.
Are members of the immediate family of a Muncie Public Library employee eligible to win prizes?
Immediate family members of employees may participate in the Summer Reading Program that corresponds to their age. Adults may receive the participation and completion prizes available to everyone, but are ineligible for the prize drawings.
