The Programs that we have are:

  • Read-to-Me (Birth - age 7) - Every 10 books read they will earn 1 Dragon Dollar
  • Kids (age 7 - 12) - Every 5 books read they will earn 1 Dragon Dollar
  • Teens (age 12 - 18) - Every 1 book read they will earn 1 Dragon Dollar
  • Adults (age 18+) - Every 1 book read they will earn 1 Dragon Dollar

If your child is between programs you, the parent or guardian, get to pick which one they register for. If your child is reading at a different level than their age, it is up to you which program to enter them in. You may have to shift their age so they are in the program that you feel is appropriate for them.

In general if they are reading picture books, board books, and early readers they would be in Read-to-Me. If they are reading chapter books, + books, and shorter kids books they would be in Kids. If they are reading longer kids books, teen books, and adult books they would be in Teens. Audio books and graphic novels both count towards the reading program!

Please only enter reading level appropriate books that you read during this program.

Dragon Dollars can be spent in the Prize Store or donated to either the DeForest Area Public Library Endowment Fund, the Dane County Humane Society, or the DeForest Area Needs Network. For more information about each of these organizations click their name to visit their website.

Non-redeemed Dragon Dollars (meaning they are on your online account as still owed to you) can be donated to any of the three organizations by sending an email to before end of day Sunday, August 11, 2019. Please include the amount you are donating to the specific organization(s). Redeemed Dragon Dollars must be donated in person.

All Dragon Dollars earned this reading program will expire at the end of the day Sunday, August 11, 2019.
