Summer Reading Programs

Summer is almost here and maintaining good reading habits in the summer months helps keep kids’ minds sharp. Below are a few programs that will keep kids reading all summer long:

Hillsborough County Public Library

This year’s “Summer Reading Adventure” invites readers of all ages to log reading hours from June 1 through July 31. Reading hours can be logged to unlock digital badges, story recommendations and the chance to win exciting prizes. Visit to register and get started.

Camp Book It!

This program offered by Pizza Hut, allows parents to reward their kids all summer long. Track and reward your kids’ reading June-August on a digital dashboard. When they meet their monthly reading goal, they’ll receive a certificate for a free one-topping Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut. Sign up online to learn more at

Scholastic Summer Reading

This program encourages kids to read while giving back to others. Kids simply create an account on Scholastic’s Home Base, where they can keep track of their Reading Streak. The longer they keep their streak up, the more books Scholastic will donate to children in need. Visit to get started.

Hillsborough County Public Schools Summer Reading with myON

This reading program runs June 1 through July 31. Students in Pre-K to Grade 12 can participate in one, two or all three of these challenges by reading as much as they can on myON this summer. Learn more at

Barnes & Noble Summer Reading

This summer, kids in grades 1-6 earn a free book through the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program. Read any eight books between now and August 31, and record them in your Summer Reading Journal. When you’re done, take it to a Barnes & Noble store and choose your free book from a pre-selected list. Visit your local Barnes & Noble to pick up a reading list.

Happy reading!
