HCL: Summer Reading Club

It's that time again! When the Howard County Public Library rolls out its fun and AWEsome summer reading program! And Mr. Jewitt and Miss Seipel visited our Media Center to talk about it LIVE! From the website:

"Beginning June 1, everyone in Howard County, babies to adults, can read for fun and earn prizes! Read or listen to books from pre-selected reading lists, or choose your own books, magazines, and newspapers. Just kick back, relax, and Make a Splash about summer reading! Sign up online or at any branch.
Make Waves Teen Summer Reading Club
Our goal is to keep you reading this summer. Your goal is to earn book bucks!

Earn "book bucks" for time you spend reading. Collect prizes for reaching goals of 50, 100, and 200 book bucks. When you earn at least 200 book bucks, you are eligible to participate in the Make Waves Readers Raffle.

Sponsored by Friends of Howard County Library.

You can read anything!
You may read books, magazines, graphic novels, newspapers, and websites. You may also listen to audio books. Check out a list of books for Middle School and High School students developed by Howard County Library's teen specialists in conjunction with the Howard County Public School System. You may earn book bucks for up to six hours of reading each day.

To get started, register at the information desk at any Howard County Library branch. We'll give you all of the materials you need to get started: a reading log, a review card, your first five book bucks, and a starter prize!

Submit Reader Reviews online or download Reader Reviews to submit paper copies at any branch.

Last day to earn book bucks and enter the raffle is August 14. Raffle winners contacted after August 18.

Instructions for the Make Waves Raffle are available translated into Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.

This year the fun is even better than EVER! With a great collection of prizes JUST FOR SIGNING UP! And after that, the prizes you can win for just spending time reading is AWEsome! Sign up at our local Savage Branch Library or online!
