Summer Reading Program - 🎵Libraries Rock!! ♬

Summer’s coming!

 This year’s theme is Libraries Rock! and children’s programming will be focused on music and instruments. 

Tuesday evening programs, from 6:30-7:30, will feature performances and events for the whole family. Wednesday afternoon from 3:30-4:30, we’ll have a drop-in Lego time, and most Wednesday nights at 6:00, we will show family movies, rated PG. Our regular Thursday morning Storytimes at 10:45 will feature stories and crafts for children of all ages.

The 2018 Summer Reading Program will begin on Tuesday, June 26th with a 6:30 pm performance, "Magic, Music, Readin' and Rockin' " by Boston area magician and award-winning entertainer Magic by George. There will be exciting magic and lots of audience participation and family humor. This promises to be a high-energy, entertaining kick off to our Summer Reading Program.

Other Tuesday evening events will include “Make Some Noise!”, a drop-in event with a quick musical instrument or glow-stick craft before families start their 4th of July celebrating. Wildlife Encounters will bring real wild animals to rock the library and Concord’s “Mr. Aaron” will be presenting an interactive concert with music, instruments, and sing-along songs. Modern Times Theater will play a variety of music on some unique instruments and present an old-time puppet show for the whole family. The Summer Reading Program will end on July 31st with a Talent Show, music party, and an ice cream social.

Read, record book titles, then check in each week with your reading records to get a weekly “Prize Bowl” prize and a raffle ticket. Raffle prizes include books, gift certificates from local businesses and organizations, and other fun items. Winners will be announced when the Summer Reading Program has ended.
