Summer Reading!
Saturday, June 8 to Saturday, August 17

Charleston County Public Library's Kids summer reading program is for children ages 11 and younger. Enjoy this FREE program at any of our locations from June 8 through August 17. For non-CCSD students, register online at home or at any 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).

Use the library's Summer Reading website to keep track of what you read, and turn it in for great prizes. Prize drawings will be held throughout the summer, and all you need to do is visit the library or attend a program to enter. Nearly 700 programs are set, including magicians, storytellers and more.
