“We encourage everyone to join us in discovering A Universe of Stories this summer” said State Librarian Stacey Aldrich. “Reading during the summer is a wonderful opportunity to dive into stories that inspire, ignite our imagination, and see the world from a new perspective.”

Read about space, science fiction, the ancient Polynesian skill of wayfinding and Hawaii’s role in astronomical research and discovery.  Keiki to kupuna are invited to participate at all public libraries statewide and online, June 1-July 13, 2019.

Help us reach our reading goal of 13 million minutes statewide! Online sign-up starts June 1st at librarieshawaii.beanstack.org or visit your local library for more details.

Hawaii’s Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i and our 2019 Summer Reading Sponsors.

 

Children, teens, and adults can also earn rewards (while supplies last) and more chances to win the prize drawing just for reading and doing learning activities.  Join in from wherever you are with online on-the-go convenience!
