Readers of all ages may enter to win a grand prize in the annual statewide Summer Reading Program of the Hawai’i State Public Library System from June 1 to July 13.

The Summer Reading Program launches this year with a goal of 13 million reading-minutes and a grand prize drawing for a trip for four on Alaska Airlines.

Six weeks of events will feature free performances, space-themed movies, crafts, displays and fun activities for everyone. Keiki to kūpuna are invited to participate at any public library both in person and online.

Sign up online beginning June 1 online or in person at any Hawai’i State Public Library.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i and their 2019 supporters.


The grand prize—four round-trip tickets to anywhere Alaska Airlines flies—is courtesy of Alaska Airlines. All keiki must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver for these activities and events. No passport services will be available on June 1.
