Adventure Begins at Your Library

by Angie Bennett, Assistant Library Director, Henrico County Public Library

Whether your summer adventures take you inside or out, be sure to make lots of room for the 2024 Summer Reading Challenge, Adventure Begins at your Library, with Henrico County Public Library. This year, we’ve made it super easy to focus on the things that really matter: Books, reading, and library fun! Visit our website HCPL – Summer Reading ( for information about how to sign up via Beanstack starting June 1. 

All locations will have lots of programs for all ages to keep the fun going all summer. By reading books and attending these activities, you can earn points to win cool prizes, as well as opportunities to earn entries for our grand prizes. Visit your local library branch for even more adventures and ways to win. You can also follow along with us on social media to participate in our Where’s the Sloth challenge and watch Scooter the Sloth, our Summer Reading mascot, have adventures throughout the county. We look forward to seeing you at the library this summer! This program is made possible by the Friends of Henrico County Public Library and all of our readers.
