Fizz Boom Read (ages 4-12) Program Rules

The “Fizz Boom Read” Summer Reading Program is open to all children ages 4-12 who have a Rainbow City Public Library card in good standing. Children who do not meet the requirements for a free library card may be issued a card by paying a $10.00 out-of-county fee. This fee is due on an annual basis. To participate in the program, fill out the Summer Reading Program Registration Form and return it to the library by Monday, June 30th.

You will earn a free drawstring backsack and be invited to attend the Summer Reading Program Reward Party on July 30th provided you read at least 15 library books OR read at least 1,000 pages and return your completed reading log to the library by 7:00 pm on Wednesday, July 23rd.

Record the library books you read on your “Fizz Boom Read” reading log BEFORE you return your books to the library. You may list the title or the library barcode number of each book you have read. If your goal is to read at least 1,000 pages, you must also list the number of pages in each book you read. If you are reading eBooks and want to count pages, list the number of pages found in the print version of the title. The number of pages for a title can often be found in the library’s catalog or on websites such as Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com. Books must be read between May 12th and July 23rd. Audiobooks may not be counted.

Only books or eBooks checked out from Rainbow City Public Library may be counted unless you are registered for our program through a school sponsored summer camp with access to a school library. Group participation and registration requires advance approval from the library director.

Before you turn in your reading log, make sure you have listed at least 15 books or indicated you have read at least 1,000 pages. Verify that your name, phone number, and library card number are listed correctly on the back of your reading log.

Your reading log must be returned to the designated “Fizz Boom Read” box. Do not return your completed reading log to the library staff or place it in the book drop.

If you fail to return your reading log by 7:00pm on Wednesday, July 23, or fail to either list at least 15 books or indicate you have read at least 1,000 pages, you will not receive a backsack.

If you earn a backsack and are unable to attend a party, please pick it up at the circulation desk after the last party has concluded. Backsacks will not be given out prior to the parties or during the time between the parties. Backsacks that are not picked up by September 15, 2014, will be forfeited.
