Summer Reading Program Information
Summer reading ends at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13; the summer reading prizes will be put away after 9 p.m. on the 13th.
For all of you eager Harvard readers who have read more than 30 hours and earned a bookplate, come by the library starting on Wednesday, Sept. 2 (the first day of school in Harvard) to choose the library book in which your bookplate will go. (Remember that you stop counting your hours on Aug. 13 at 9 p.m.)
Important note: You do not have to come in to the library on Aug. 13 to confirm your hours — we can access your online account or review your paper logs after summer reading officially ends.
And no need to rush in on September 2 to choose your bookplate book: You have until Oct. 15 to choose the book for your bookplate!
