Each summer we offer a Summer Reading Program that is part of the Statewide Summer Reading Program sponsored by the Massachusetts Regional Library System. A different theme is presented each year that provides an incentive to keep children of all ages reading during the summer months.

Children may set goals and keep track of the books they read in a log that is provided. Children are invited to our regular story times and
to additional "special programs" of music and arts & crafts. Please check in the Children's Room for the schedule of events that are appropriate for your child's age and interest. If you are planning to bring a large group to one of our events, please call ahead.


Visit the library to register your child, at any age before they enter kindergarten, for this free do-it-at-home program! Your child will receive a reading log to record the books you read together. For every 100 books you read, your family will receive fun rewards
