Pickup for Summer Reading Prizes Begins

CCPL’s Summer Reading program is well underway, but with branches closed, you may be wondering how to cash in on all that hard work and receive your rewards. Well, you’re in luck, because starting Monday, June 22, prizes will be available for curbside pick up at your local branch.

The process is simple. Once you’ve reached a reading milestone, simply call your pickup branch (the branch you indicated when you signed up) during their operating hours to schedule your pickup. Then just drive, bike or walk on over, find the designated curbside pickup area, and get your prizes. (Due to current conditions, operating hours are subject to change. Visit ccpl.org for updates.)

Haven’t started reading yet? What are you waiting for?! It’s as easy as Read, Log and Win! Don’t miss out on this chance to explore worlds of wonder, imagine your own story, and win great prizes just for reading up a book. 

Kids ages 11 and younger can earn prizes for reading or listening to stories. Rewards are distributed to kids who complete five, 15, and 30 hours of reading. Prizes include the S.C. Reading Medal, a Summer Reading T-Shirt, a brand-new K-5th grade book, vouchers for local attractions, and more. Enjoy a loaded schedule of virtual programs on CCPL’s Facebook and website including live performances, STEM activities, crafts, and cooking lessons. Summer Reading for Babies is for pre-readers. Participants who complete 23 of the activities receive a board book, shaker egg, and storytime scarf.

Students entering grades 6-12 can win cool prizes for reading whatever they like. Teens are rewarded when they read five, 15, and 30 hours. Prizes include earbuds, fidget spinners, vouchers for local restaurants and attractions, a brand-new YA/middle grade book, a Summer Reading t-shirt, and more. Teens are eligible for weekly prize drawings for reading only five pages or five minutes per week. Twenty teens system-wide will win the grand prize, a $50 gift card and Kindle Fire 7 tablet.

Participants ages 18 and older earn prizes for reading five, 15, and 30 hours. Prizes include CCPL swag, a brand-new adult title, and a Summer Reading t-shirt. Adults who earn at least 200 points per week are entered into weekly drawings for gift cards. Four grand prize winners system-wide will receive a prize valued at $200.
