About the Reading Club
The Hogwarts Reading Club will run the duration of the school year. And this year, we've added a second club! Students in grades 1-12, and adults can participate by keeping track of their reading.
Select which Hogwarts House you want your reading to go towards - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. Keep track of the books you read AND the number of pages in the books - the pages read will be your House points. Giving a brief review of the book(s) will get you bonus points for your House.
There will be monthly activities, such as writing prompts, word searches, crosswords, etc., that participants can complete to earn additional House points.
Ask about our mailing list - we can email reminders as well as send out the monthly activities.
Participants can submit their reading until June 15, 2019. The following week, there will be a celebration, and the House with the most points will win the coveted House Cup (and bragging rights for the year)! Prizes will be awarded at the year-end celebration.
Keeping Track of Your Reading - choose one of the following methods:
- Fill out the form available online (for each book you read).
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, grade (or age if you are in the Adult Reading Club), House, book title, number of pages, and a review of the book (optional).
- Write down the information and hand it in at the front desk at the library.
We'll post monthly updates on House Points, so participants can see how well their House is doing - and if they need to step it up!
Not a fan of Harry Potter?
That's okay! You can still keep track of your reading and compete for the grand prize - a free library card (one year membership). We'll sort you into a House at random, so that your reading can still help others competing for the House Cup!
