So Long to the Summer Reading Program

see you next year

So long old friend.
We laughed, we cried, we took grand adventures without ever having to leave the comfort of our couch. Alas, all good things must come to an end and we bid adieu to the 2014 HCPL Summer Reading Program. 

Thanks to all who participated and we hope to see you again next year! If you didn't get a chance to participate, the summer reading program will return June 2015. 

Check out our summer reading stats:
- Registrations: 1192
- Completions: 446
- Minutes Read: 421,104
- Titles Read: 12,062
