Talking Book Services (TBS) patrons have a summer reading program that is created just for them. This program is divided into four categories, based on age, to encourage everyone to participate.
The categories are:
- Emergent: 0 to 5 years of age
- Child: 6-11 years of age
- Youth: 12-17 years of age
- Adult: 18 years fo age and up.
Patrons who enroll will receive a registration packet and choose to either count the number of books they read, or the hours spent reading. They will report progress by contacting a Reader Advisor at 1(800) 922-7818 who will then log the information into our tracking software. Participants who report reading at least one book or one hour will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing to receive a Kindle Fire. One Grand Prize winner will be chosen for each reading category. Prizes will also be given to patrons in each age category who have read the most books and those who have read the most hours.
To enroll in the TBS summer reading program, current patrons should contact a Reader Advisor at 1 (800) 922-7818 or TBSBooks@statelibrary.sc.gov.
