Every summer in mid-June, Brownell Library kicks off the summer reading program with a marshmallow roast. What follows is two full months of fun and educational activities that celebrate reading and community. Participants who turn in a reading log (any reading log, not just the "official" Brownell log) are invited to our end of summer party with the No String Marionettes at Maple Street Park and will receive a free book.
Teens in grades 6 through 12 are also invited to participate in the summer reading program by reading books and attending or volunteering for events. All teen summer reading participants will be invited to a volunteer party at the end of the summer and entered into a prize drawing.
The 2021 Theme, Tails and Tales, will feature animals and stories, or maybe some combination of the two.
