Summer Reading Sponsors


We’d like to thank The Friends of the Vineyard Haven Public Library for Supporting Summer Reading! This summer we want to give back to local businesses for all their years of support, so the Friends will be purchasing and giving gift certificates from local businesses as summer reading and contest prizes this summer.

"Imagine Your Story" is sponsored by your local library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
