For all of you eager Harvard readers who read more than 30 hours this summer and earned a bookplate, see the information below about how bookplates will work this year.

Bookplate book selection is now open!  smiley

Things are a little different this year for bookplate selection, but we are trying to make it as easy as possible!

Bookplate selection began on Tuesday, September 1, but you have until November 30 to choose the book in which your bookplate will go.

Book choice: Remember you only get one bookplate for the summer!  Since your first choice might already have a bookplate in it, please list three ranked book choices of books that are in the children's room of the HPL.

Summer reading participants who earned bookplates should send their ranked book choices by email to:

Library staff will check to see if their first choice is available; if not, then we will look at the second choice; if the second choice is not available, then we will look at the third choice.

Additionally, summer reading participants need to choose which style of bookplate they prefer - either Owl or Library.  See the photo for the two bookplate style choices!

Great job reading this summer, everyone!
