1. Register for Summer Reading
Use the button above for your age group and sign up online using your library card. Register before June 30, and you’ll be entered to win a 4-pack of tickets to Richmond Flying Squirrels games!
2. Track your reading
Check in to your Summer Reading page throughout the summer to enter the days and books you’ve read, and the library programs you've attended. When you enter your progress online, you become eligible for weekly drawings* for $25 Gift Cards to major retailers!
Not sure what to read? Our staff can create a Custom Book List just for you that matches your personal reading interests. And remember, attending a library program also counts as one book or one day of reading—check our Events Calendar to find fun things for all ages to do this summer!
*Weekly drawings start June 18 and continue every Monday until August 27.
3. Reach your Summer Reading Goal
Read for 20 days this summer (adults, read 5 books) and enter your reading online by Friday, August 31. You’ll automatically win a book* from the library and be entered in the Grand Prize Drawings on September 1!
*Kids and teens win their choice from a selection of new books; adults get a coupon for a free book from the Friends of HCPL book sale. Prize books will be available to pick up at your library starting Monday, July 2.
