Summer Reading for Grown-Ups


Imagine Your Story with the Houston Public Library's first ever Virtual Summer Reading for Grown-Ups!

Whether you’re 18 or 118 years of age, you can sign up to read and review books, participate in virtual library events, and earn a chance to win books.*

Summer Reading for Grown-Ups (SRG) is a free program to encourage adults to read and explore various virtual library programs and resources.

Family Fun!

An adult who registers for the Summer Reading for Grown-Ups with a youth participant who completes the Summer Reading Program will receive a free book.**

Read books in any format and submit an original mini review that includes your opinion and not just a summary. You may read a book, e-book, comic book, graphic novel, blogs, magazine articles, newspapers, or listen to an audiobook.

Prize drawings are based on how many original reviews you submit. In other words, the more you read and review, the better your chances of winning!

*HPL staff members are not eligible to participate in the 2020 SRG.
**Earned books may be picked up after Central and Neighborhood Libraries re-open.

The Summer Reading for Grown-ups is generously sponsored by the Houston Public Library Foundation.
