Read on Wisconsin began as a book club by Wisconsin First Lady, Jessica Doyle, in 2004.  In 2011, the Children’s Cooperative Book Center, at UW-Madison, took over administering the program.  Read On Wisconsin has been about connecting kids and teens with terrific books, and encouraging them to think and to talk about what they are reading, or what is being read to them.

Read the selected 2017-2018 books for your age level, answer the question for each book that you read and redeem your sheet to receive a prize for each book you share/read!  Read the designated amount for your level and earn a free book!  Redemption begins on September 5th and runs through December 30th. You must have your sheet with you to collect prizes.  You do not have to stay in your age category and can do multiple sheets if you so choose.  Reading logs are available in the youth room.
