About the Kids Program

Charleston County Public Library's Summer Reading program is for children ages 11 and younger. Enjoy this FREE program from June 4 through August 13. 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).

CCSD students are already pre-registered in the program. Their username and password are the same as their CCSD email. Teachers and librarians at each school can help students log into their accounts. For non-CCSD participants, register online at home.

Log your reading here, and earn great prizes. If you do not have access to the internet, please visit or call your local CCPL branch for assistance.
