How It Works

To participate in our Summer Reading Program, all readers must be registered. Registration can be completed in-person at the HCCPL Front Desk. The form also can be accessed online, here.

Participants will be divided into the following categories based on age:

Prereaders: ages 0-4

Kids: ages 5-12

Teens: ages 13-17

Adults: ages 18+


After registration is complete, be sure to pick up a reading log to start tracking your hours. Summer Reading Logs can be collected from the HCCPL Front Desk. You can also download the logs here.

To track the hours, you read during our Summer Reading Program, color in a box on your reading log for every hour you read. You’ll receive a prize bag and a raffle ticket for the first five hours completed. For every five hours read after that, you will earn a raffle ticket. When you have read ten hours total, you will receive a plush toy and a raffle ticket. Prizes will be raffled off at the finale July 13th. To claim your prize bag and raffle tickets, bring reading logs to the HCCPL Front Desk.

All reading logs must be redeemed by July 12th
