Happy 200th Birthday, Indiana! Welcome to the 2016 Hamilton East Public Library Summer Reading Program: Summer Under the Stars for Kids!

This programs runs from June 1st through July 31st and is open to everyone from babies to students entering fifth grade (Fall 2016). Just keep track of how many pages you read (or have read to you) and record them in your account. This program has four levels of 400 pages each (which is about 12 picture books). Once you finish each of the four levels, you may stop by either location at Fishers or Noblesville to collect a prize. But don't stop reading! For every additional 400 pages completed, you are entered into our end-of-summer raffle! Good luck!
