About the Adult Summer Reading Program

Charleston County Public Library's summer reading program isn’t just for kids! Adults are invited to participate in this free virtual program from June 1 through August 31. Register online at home, and keep track of points earned by reading or listening to a story. Just log your reading here. 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. If you do not have access to the internet, please download the Adult Summer Reading Log or call your local CCPL branch for assistance. Prize drawings will be held throughout the summer.
