Program 1

Summer Reading Program

The HCPL Summer Reading Program encourages children and teens of all ages to read or be read to during the summer.  Studies have shown that reading for fun helps children succeed at school and that students who read during the summer do better when they return to school in the fall.  The HCPL Summer Reading Program provides fun incentives for children to sign up for the program and provides a free book for all those who complete their reading logs.
