Take Me to Your Reader
Summer Reading 2019 has officially begun! To register and keep track of your books online, go to hooverlibrary.beanstack.org. To register and keep track of your books on paper, stop by a desk in the Kid Zone or Teen Spot. We're logging pages again this year. You will receive a prize ticket at 200, 500, 1000, and 1500 pages and every 1000 pages after that (5500 page limit). Prize room opens June 3, 2019.
