We’ve created an online version of the 2020 Mind, Body & Sole summer reading program to make it easier for our customers to participate by following these instructions.

Instructions

  1. Sign in to your MBS account with your Library Barcode and PIN and press the sign in button.
  2. When you enter your MBS account (for the first time only), you will be redirected to the registration page. Please fill out the information for the first participant and press the submit button.
  3. You will then be redirected to your MBS calendar page. This calendar will be used to keep track of days spent reading, being active, or both.
  4. To register more participants under your MBS account, click the “New Participants” button in the grey navigation bar. Enter the information on the register page and press the submit button. After every registration entry, you will be redirected back to your calendar. Follow this step for adding multiple participants under your account.
  5. All participants added will be shown in the drop down menu within the grey navigation bar. If you are managing multiple participants, the drop down window allows you to change between the different participants in your account.
  6. To start recording time spent reading, being active or both on your calendar, click the day of the month. Click the day once if you read that day and the day will turn green and show a book (read). Click the day twice If you have been active that day and  the day will show a pair of shoe prints (active). Click the day three times if you read and are active on the same day and it will show both a pair of shoe prints and a book (read and active). See table below for icon descriptions.
  7. When finished, click the save button in the grey navigation bar. If you are managing multiple participants, you need to save that calendar before moving to another participant’s calendar.
  8. When you reach the reading and movement 26-day milestones, you will have earned a fun Mind, Body & Sole “goodie bag” available for pick-up at the Library beginning Monday, August 3. Participants will also be entered into a drawing for an end-of-summer prize basket.
