The name has changed but our NEW Summer Reading Initiative is easier than ever!
Spend the long, lazy days of summer building a better you, better friendships, a better community and a better planet!
Summer @ Your Library, the new summer reading initiative, begins June 1 and concludes on August 31, 2017.
Read and participate in fun activities to unlock virtual badges and win prizes when you enroll in HCLS’ Summer @ Your Library: Build a Better World for children, teens, and adults.
Whether you participate in our new, easy online experience via Beanstack or through the traditional print version, there are a variety of activities and reading options from which to choose. Complete the required number of books or activities to earn virtual badges valid for prizes* and/or entries into branch and grand prize drawings. You can collect your virtual badges online, or at any library branch by showing us your print version to log your progress. Reading may be substituted for any activity.
REGISTER ONLINE beginning June 1, 2017 through our Beanstack product by creating an account and then enroll in Summer @ Your Library. If you already have an account with Beanstack, simply sign in to your account and then enroll in Summer @ Your Library.
If you prefer to participate using our traditional print version you may register at any HCLS Branch beginning June 1, 2017.
Children and teens must earn the enrollment badge plus any 5 badges to receive Summer @ Your Library completion coupons and a prize*.
Adults may collect up to 12 badges to earn entries into branch and grand prize drawings.
