Get ready for a summer full of fun with HPB's Summer Reading Camp June 1 - July 31! Designed to keep students of all ages in the books while school is out, readers will have access to book recommendations, craft ideas and cool activities. They can even turn reading logs in at their local Half Price Books store to receive Bookworm Bucks, which are good for $5 off any purchase in store.
What is Sweet Reads?
How does it work? It's quite easy! Follow these 4 steps:
Read 5 books (or have someone read 5 books to you!). Any book or periodical will do.
Validate the bookmark at your local library (note: the library does not have to be a participating Sweet Reads library). Just ask your favorite librarian to sign the dotted line.
Bring your validated bookmark to one of 6 eligible Millie's locations for a free scoop of your choice.
Join us for Camp BOOK IT! and get rewards all summer long for reading.
Track and reward your reading for June, July and August in our digital dashboard. When you meet your monthly reading goal, you’ll receive a free one-topping Personal Pan Pizza® from Pizza Hut!
We'll also share fun activities and book recommendations each week to keep the fun going throughout the summer!
Our annual summer reading program begins Sunday, June11th at both store locations. This year we are going old school with a traditional write up. NO! Its not a book report…
Stop in or print the attached Summer Reading Booklet to start . Students entering Kindergarten to entering 5th grade earn a free book, after completing the attached Summer Reading Booklet. They may earn 3 free books by completing 3 cards. This program runs through August 19th.
Once again, we are including teens in the summer reading fun! Students entering 6th-12th grade can also complete the booklet to be entered into a raffle to win a raffle basket of reading fun.
Bring a completed booklet to either our McCandless or Squirrel Hill location and pick out a free book from our selection or fill out a raffle ticket! And then read and repeat!
Remember, our Summer Reading Program will end on August 19th, so start reading (and checking off your card!)

SCHOLASTIC’S HOME BASE APP FOR SUMMER READING
From May 4 through September 7th, kids can visit the summer zone in Scholastic Home Base, a completely free digital destination which offers stories, characters, games, and a community of readers. Home Base is moderated for safety 24/7.
Keep a Reading Streak™
Kids will be able to track their summer reading by reading every day and maintaining a Reading Streak™ in Home Base.
The longer a child extends their Reading Streak™, the more digital experiences they earn! Kids can read any book of their choice and download and print a report of their reading progress at any time.
