About the Teen Summer Reading Program

Charleston County Public Library's summer reading program is for teens is designed for rising 6th graders to 18-year-olds. Enjoy this FREE program virtually from June 1 through August 31. 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 students, 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 Teens Summer Reading Log or call your local CCPL branch for assistance.
