Reader Zone

Reader Zone is a convenient app that allows you to record your reading progress. You can log your individual reading progress as well as join different Reading Groups. Reading Groups can be Goal based, Group vs. Group based, Reader vs. Reader based, or simply a Reading Log. When you complete different milestones, you earn awards! Some of the Belleville Public Library’s awards even correspond with small prizes! Learn more here.
