Teen Winter Reading Club 2018

In case you have not heard this month is Winter Reading. During this month, you register online and then log the books (or magazines, ebooks, audiobooks, and graphic novels) that you read during this month. For every book logged, you get a slip to put into one of four prize boxes. On March 1st, one name will be drawn from each prize box to win.

2018 Teen Winter Reading Prizes:


Weekly Prizes

This year we have even more chances to win something! All teens registered in Teen Winter Reading Club is automatically entered to win a small weekly prize.

Warm Up With a Good Comic Book

As many of you may know, the Teen Room is home to many of your favorite superhero comics. However, did you know that you can access some of these comic books (and some that we don’t physically have) through Hoopla?

Well, you can! Here is just a small sample of what you can find on Hoopla:

1 2 3 5

6 7 84


Now I know what you’re probably thinking: “That’s great, Librarian Lady, but how do I even get to this thing?”

Very, very simply my friend. You can find it on the main page of the library website. You just click the link!



The best part about Hoopla is it’s FREE through HCPL.

So, there is literally nothing between you and your favorite world saving hero. What are you waiting for?
