Charleston County Public Library's summer reading program is for children ages 11 and younger. Enjoy this FREE program at any CCPL location from June 1 through July 31. Register online or at a CCPL branch, and keep track of points earned by reading or listening to a story. One page or one minute = one point. Earn prizes when you reach 300 points (5 hours), 900 points (15 hours) and 1800 points (30 hours). 

Students reading for school this summer may also count that as reading for CCPL simply by logging their progress through their online accounts. It's a win-win!
