Summer Reading Program Ends Soon

I can’t believe it, but the Summer Reading Club will be ending in less than one week!  The 2009 Children's Summer Reading Program is designed for kids between the ages of 0 – 12 years old. Anytime a child reads a book, or is read to it counts towards their reading goals.

You can register and log information online at http://www.hcpl.net/kidsite/summerreader.htm or visit any Harris County Public Library, and the staff will be happy to assist you.
