Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading 2021 is underway and we would love for you to join the fun! We have summer reading activities for kids, teens, and adults.

Summer Reading For Kids and Teens
We’re pleased to bring back our wonderful Summer Reading Programs for kids and teens. The Youth Services team has been busy selecting and adding new books all year, so we have lots of new and exciting titles ready for the summer! The theme this year is Tails and Tales, so we’ll be sure to have great stories about wonderful creatures, from loyal pets to fantastic beasts.

Reading over the summer is one of the best things that kids or teens can do to give themselves a boost for the next school year. Staying active with reading keeps the mind fresh and active and helps make sure that students are sharp and ready at the start of the new year. 

Summer Reading is a lot of fun! Our staff is on hand to help young readers find books they truly enjoy and those who participate get the chance to win fun prizes! Every Summer Reading Bingo Sheet completed is a raffle entry for prizes at the end of the summer, and every reader who stays active in the program will be invited to our Summer Reading Show in August. Active readers will also win free gelato from Gelato Fiasco, and get to pick out a free book to keep! 

To sign up, stop by the library and speak to one of our Youth Services staff in the library or email youthservices@falmouthmemoriallibrary.org for more information.  

Summer Reading For Adults
Why should kids have all the fun this summer? Whether you have fond memories of summer reading from childhood or you’ve never had the chance to participate in such a program before, Falmouth Memorial Library is here to encourage adults to challenge themselves to read more this summer!

This year’s Adult Summer Reading participants will have the chance to win gift cards to one of three local restaurants: Baharat, Black Cow Burgers, or Rivalries. All Adult Summer Reading participants will receive one entry for simply signing up and additional entries by completing our Adult Summer Reading bingo sheets. New bingo sheets will be released each month, so be sure to stop by the library throughout the summer!

To sign up, stop by the library and speak to one of our Adult Services staff in the library or email reference@falmouthmemoriallibrary.org for more information.
