To register, simply go to and start logging your reading time! The program consists of three age groups: children (0-11), teens (12-17) and adults (18+). A virtual badge and 5 raffle tickets will be awarded for every 5 hours of reading time. These raffle tickets can be applied to a range of awesome prizes from Sussex County Beanstack. On top of that, people who log reading time in each given week will automatically be entered into weekly raffle prizes from the Greenwood Public Library. Kids and teens who read for ten hours may come into the library to choose their free book. Be sure to check our library calendar for exciting programs too!
