Summer Reading Countdown continues

People are starting to get excited about the start of the Summer Reading Program.  You can be checking out and reading your books, but signups will start on Monday June 1.  You can log on to the Library website www.hcpl.net and click on the Summer Reading Program for your age group.  This year it will be easier for adults to manage multiple readers under 1 main participant.
