New -- Summer Reading 2016

Summer Reading 2016 We're ready for summer! This year, our Summer Reading Program runs from June 20th to July 31st.

The Children's Room is focusing on being active, playing games, and having fun while learning. As for reading, we'll be encouraging children to browse the library and choose books based on anything that interests them - be it an exciting summary, a topic they love, or a cover that grabs them.

Children grow to love books when they are empowered to make their own reading choices. We'll be here to guide them for the six weeks of Summer Reading and beyond!

Take a look at our Calendar of Events for more info on programs.

We'd like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations:
Canobie Lake Park
Checkered Flag Indoor Karting
The Topsfield Fair
Vertical Dreams
