Everyone has the opportunity to earn prizes for reading.  Many branch prizes have been donated by area businesses, the Houston Zoo, and the Plantation Quilting Guild.   

Kids and teens are eligible to win County Grand Prizes, which include Digiland tablets, LEGO building sets, and a beginner’s telescope kit.   Grand Prizes will be awarded on Facebook Live on Friday, August 2nd at 5:00 p.m. Tune in to see if you are a winner!

Each of the system’s 12 libraries offers great programs and events throughout the summer. Learn about area reptiles from Texas Master Naturalists.  Discover different kinds of transportation throughout time with the Brazoria County Historical Museum.  Learn about Tesla coils and the electricity they create.  Participate in crafting, gaming, teen parties and much more. 

Each library posts a calendar of summer events on their individual web-pages and at the library.  All programs are free to the public, however seating and materials for each program is limited. Contact your local library for more information about programs, events, and activities.

Sponsors for our Summer Reading Clubs include:
Brazoria County Library System Foundation, Crocodile Encounter of Angleton, Plantation Quilting Guild, Whataburger, the Houston Zoo and the Friends of the Library organization at each branch.
