Don't Stop Reading This Summer!

At this point of the summer, many of our patrons have already completed our summer reading program and gotten all their prizes from it. However, just because you have finished does not mean you should stop reading for the summer! The Harris County Public Library has a weekly challenge of books throughout the summer to help keep you motivated. This can help you try books and genres you wouldn’t normally read for a great experience. Look at the list below to see what the upcoming challenges are and come into the library to find something new to read!

  • July 15-21: It's Not Rocket Science- DIY/Maker Books
  • July 22-28: No One Can Hear You Scream- Horror Books
  • July 29-August 4: Lune-Y Reads- Humour
