Reader Dashboard: An Overview

The Reader Dashboard allows patrons to track reading and activity information for themselves and family members. This section will provide a general overview.

There are six tabs with different functions:

• Challenge Badges: Displays the badges earned for registering and completing the program.
Logging Badges: Displays the badges you will earn for time read. Clicking on these badges allows you to enter time read.
Activity Badges: Displays activity badges. Clicking on a badge will show the activities for each, allowing you to review and check any you have completed.
Earned Badges: Displays all the badges you have earned.
Challenge Log: Displays book titles and the total time you have spent reading. Clicking on individual titles provides the date and shows how much time you spent reading a book. It is also possible to remove books and/or update time read.

In the center of the page, there are other access points:
