Kids Summer Reading Club Guidelines

  • The “Every Hero Has a Story” summer reading club is for babies up to students entering grade 5 in the fall.
  • Beginning May 30, sign up for the club, or visit us at the Hancock County Public Library in Greenfield, the Sugar Creek Branch in New Palestine, or aboard the Bookmobile.
  • Read a book. Then log it online. Need help? Ask at the children's desk.
  • Read and log seven books, and pick out a free book (1 per child).
  • Keep reading books all summer long for “U-pick” prizes.
  • Pick up all prizes by August 1.
  • Each book that you read and log online creates an entry into our grand prize drawing. The more you read, the greater your chances. You might win Indiana State Fair tickets, a new bicycle, or an eReader tablet. The drawing takes place after August 1, and winners will be notified. Grand prizes must be picked up by Sunday, August 9.
