The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing:

With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.

Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling
the types of knowledge essential to success:
Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy,
Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.

The Summer Reading Club is open to students who will be entering grades one through twelve in the fall. Membership is free. Students need only to have a valid library card and come in with a parent (or legal guardian) to sign up. Registration will begin Monday, June 12th and continue throughout the summer. Younger children are eligible to join HAPL’s Read-To-Me and Toddler Read-To-Me clubs. The main and branch libraries will host Read-To-Me (RTM) clubs for children ages 4, 5, and 6 who have not yet entered kindergarten. To be eligible to join the Preschool RTM, children must be 4 years of age at registration. We will also offer a Toddler Read-To-Me (TRTM) club for children ages 2 and 3. To be eligible to join the Toddler (TRTM) club, children must be 2 years of age at the time of registration. Contact your local library for more information. To be eligible to attend programs or storytimes, children must be enrolled in the Summer Reading Program. When you sign up for the reading program, you will receive a reading log to use throughout the summer. Friday, August 11th is the last day to complete club requirements. All finishers will receive certificates, be invited to our Open House, and will be eligible to receive prizes. You must pre-register to attend storytimes and activities. The last day to complete RTM and TRTM club requirements will be Friday August 11th. All Read– To– Me finishers will be eligible to attend the Open House and will earn certificates and be eligible to win prizes.
