What are the Challenges?

The Tween and Teen Summer Reading Challenges are a great chance for youth ages 10-17 to continue their love of reading through the summer months to encourage life-long reading habits. 

How do the Challenges work?

  • Register online or through the READsquared app
  • Track how many books are read via READsquared between June 14 and August 31, 2021
  • For every book read and logged participants will earn points towards weekly prizes and the end-of-Summer grand prizes
  • Extra points can be earned if participants complete book reviews and missions located in the READsquared module

How do I sign up?

Register online at or download the READsquared app to register on your mobile device. If you are unable to register using the app or on your computer, please call us at 905-688-6103.

  • To register yourself (or only one youth participant), click "Myself Only"
  • To create a linked Family account (caregiver and one or more youth participant), click "Myself + Other Readers"
  • If you have already created a READsquared account for past Reading Challenges, then you can log-in using that information

How do I log books?

  1. Log into READsquared
  2. Click "log reading". Enter the book title and author and click submit.
  3. For extra points, add a book review (minimum 140 characters).

How do prize drawings work?

  • Participants earn points through logging their reading - the more points you have, the greater the chance you have at winning a weekly prize.
  • Weekly prizes are drawn randomly from that week's pool of readers. Only reading logged during that specific week will count towards that week's prize drawing. For example, reading completed and logged during Week 3 will not count towards the prize drawing for Week 4, and so on.
  • All submitted reading logs and points will count towards the Grand Prize drawings that occur at the end of the Summer
  • Prizes available throughout the summer include gift certificates to Someday Books, Beechwood Doughnuts, Chapters, Dairy Queen, and more!
