What is READsquared?

READsquared is software that allows South Dakota's public libraries to manage their reading programs online. READsquared makes it easy and fun for your users to sign up from home, track reading goals and collect incentives.

After you register your library, we provide a default set-up to get you started. Use it as-is or customize it for your library's programs.

  • Use your library's branding and customize options
  • Includes popular themed, seasonal and 1000 book programs
  • Set up the app to integrate with your ILS and catalog
  • Add learning games for all ages
  • App can be set up for email and text messaging
  • Patrons can set up individual, family or group accounts

Register your library and customize READsquared's many programs and patron engagement features to fit your library's needs. Learn more about reading programs features by trying a demo.
