I'd Rather Be Reading!

I'd Rather Be Reading is a year-round reading program created by Harper College Library. Our goal is to promote recreational reading and engagement with our patrons. 

This program is open to all students, Harper College employees, and community members. 

The book must be checked out from Harper College Libray's collection or requested through Interlibrary Loan (community members cannot request items through interlibrary loan). 

Entry forms must be completed for each book read. Entry forms are available at "The Desk" (located on the 2nd floor of the library) or online (coming soon!). Completed forms should be returned to "The Desk". Incomplete forms will not be counted.

Every three months, one winner is chosen to receive a prize package. Contest periods run from September-November, December-February, March-May, and June-August. 

Print and audiobooks are both accepted formats.

Every book read counts for one entry. There is no limit on how many times you can enter the contest.
