Summer Reading: Try the Family Management Portal

This year our Summer Reading Challenge offers the ability for parents/guardians to manage their children's accounts. Just visit the Family Management Portal

You can create new accounts or link existing accounts. We hope this makes life just a little less complicated for those who have multiple children participating in the program!
