Summer Reading 2017

June 18th - August 12th

It's that time of year again!

The Summer Reading program gets underway at the library starting June 18th. Stop by the library to fill out your registration form.

Every week, you'll fill out a reading log, then bring it in to the library. Click here to download a reading log to print out at home. They're also available at the library. There's no reviews required this year, just reading!

Earn raffle tickets for the books and the pages that you read. (E-Books, Audiobooks, and Graphic Novels all count!). If you have summer reading to do for school, that counts, too!

 
Earn 1 ticket for every 100 pages you read or for 150 minutes of an audiobook you listen to
Earn 1 ticket for each book you complete
 
Page/Minute totals are cumulative, so at the end of the summer, you'll get tickets for all those leftover pages that didn't add up to even hundreds!

Prizes include:
Tickets to Water Country and Canobie Lake Park
$25 iTunes gift cards
gift certificates to Bobby Sue’s and Zeb’s
R/C Helicopter
D&D gear
...and much more!
Raffle jars will be located on the windowsill in the YA section of the library.

Earn special milestone prizes when you’ve read 1, 3, 5, and 8 books!
If you read more books than Chris this summer, you'll be entered into a raffle for a super special prize at the end of the summer! Chris's reading list, and reader leaderboards, will be available by Chris's desk.

Dungeons & Dragons - Summer 2017

Earn 3 Summer Reading raffle tickets for attending!

Join us for our Summer campaign of Dungeons & Dragons as we face a new threat to our fantasy world: Giants.

We'll provide everything you need to play; if you have your own supplies, feel free to bring them! It's important to try to make every session to keep the story running smoothly, but if you need to miss one or two, just let Chris know ahead of time. Folks are welcome to come to single sessions to watch as well--we might even have a character for you to play!

Saturday, July 1st, from 10am-1pm at the library, we'll get underway with creating the characters that we'll use for this campaign. Pick your race, your class, and develop the backstory of the character you'll play over the next few weeks.

The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, July 8, 10am-1pm
Saturday, July 15, 10am-1pm
Saturday, July 22, 10am-1pm
Saturday, July 29, 11:30am-1pm (Library opens after the parade)
Saturday, August 5, 10am-1pm
Saturday, August 12, 10am-1pm

You must register ahead of time to participate! At least 6 people have to sign up for it to run.
