Sign Up for Summer Reading 2022
Summer Reading starts June 21! This year's theme is "Read Beyond the Beaten Path". Sign up in the Children's Room or register online. Track how many minutes you read this summer by picking up a reading log at the library or online with Beanstack. Help the library reach our goal of 90,000 minutes read by kids this summer! We are counting minutes through August 31st.
While you're at the library, pick up a schedule of events so you will know when all the outdoor story times, craft programs, and special events will be held. You can also take home a bingo game created by the Boston Bruins and hunt around the Children's Room for the woodland animal pictures that will be hidden in various places throughout the summer. Don't forget to find the letters each week for the word scramble game, and complete the "Five Things to Do This Week."
