Summer Reading Program 2018: Libraries Rock!

Libraries Rock: June 25 - August 24, 2018

Get ready for our annual Summer Reading Program! This year's theme is Libraries Rock!  The Summer Reading Program is a 9 week long statewide incentive program that is a fun and non-competitive way to encourage kids to READ over the summer.  The library partners with families to stop the loss of literacy skills( aka the  "Summer Slide") while kids are on summer vacation. We encourage children to track their reading through our online system AND to visit the library to earn beads for our Brag Tag necklaces through our Read and Bead program. We also have TONS of amazing prizes to raffle this summer. Raffle tickets are earned by collecting beads, checking out books, and attending library programs!  Click the "Register/Log-in" button to the right to enroll, beginning on Monday, June 18th.

PLEASE NOTE
If your child has participated in past years, you must register them AGAIN for this year's summer reading program.  If you have questions or concerns, please call the library at 781-769-0200 or email norchild@minlib.net to speak to a staff member. 

Read and Bead with Brag Tags

This year, our reading program will have an in-library component as well.  Every child who registers for our summer reading program will get a Brag Tag necklace or key chain to fill up with beads as they log the amount of time they read.  We hope families will come in weekly with their logs and report the amount of time kids have spent reading.  Once you register for the summer reading program, please come to the library to collect your necklace and tag.  For each time interval, children will be able to choose a specific bead to add to their necklace or key chain:

15 Minutes = Solid Color Beads
30 Minutes = Sparkly Beads
1 Hour = Shiny Beads
2 Hours = Glow-in-the-Dark Beads
4 Hours = Shape Beads
