2020 HEPL Summer Reading Program: Imagine Your Story

Join the HEPL community of readers this summer to achieve a combined goal of 5,000,000 minutes of reading during June and July, 2020! Support local businesses by logging your reading each week to be entered into a weekly virtual drawing for gift cards for all ages provided by the Friends of the Library. All children and teens who participate will be eligible to select their own paperback book to keep once the library buildings reopen to the public. Adult participants will be eligible for a window cling decal. The Imagine Your Story Prize stations will open on Monday, July 6th in the Youth Services areas at both libraries

The Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program includes activities for all ages that can be completed in addition to reading. Earn a virtual badge for completing activities and for sharing a book review of your favorite (or not-so-favorite) book.

The Humane Society for Hamilton County is HEPL’s Summer Reading Program partner this year. You can support the Humane Society through their Love and Let Live program and in many other ways you will discover on their website.

Enroll at any time in the Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program through your Beanstack account with HEPL. If you already have an account you need only enroll. If you are new to Beanstack take a minute to create an account for yourself and the readers in your household. Reading logged between June 1 and July 31, 2020 will count toward the program.


Thank you to the Friends of the Hamilton East Public Library for providing funds to purchase gift cards in support of local businesses and toward providing a paperback book for all children and teens who participate in the program!
