Summer reading starts at library

The Medfield Public Library has launched its summer reading program. From now through August, library patrons can participate in some of the reading activities being offered this summer.

Kids can register and print a summer reading log to keep track of their reading. Patrons can also pick up a reading log from the library between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or 4 to 6 p.m., on Mondays through Thursdays , or 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Kids can pick between the Kid’s Summer Reading Log, recommended for kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade, or Tiny Tales Summer Reading Log for ages 0 to 5 years old. Once kids have started reading, they can claim prizes using the summer reading prize form up to four times.

From now until August 12, teens (6th grade to 12th grade) can print up a BINGO sheet or pick one up from the library and play along during the summer. These sheets encourage not only reading, but trying new activities along the way. Once participants complete a row of the BINGO board, they can email to be eligible in a weekly drawing for a local gift card. Teens will also be entered into the grand prize drawing at the end of summer. Participants who cover the entire BINGO card will earn five additional entries.

Adults trying to read more this summer can print up or pickup a copy of this year’s Adult Summer Reading Challenge. From now until August 31, participants can read and record their books for a chance to win gift cards. Patrons who complete three books will be entered to win a gift card for Blue Moon, while those who read five will be entered to win a $25 gift card to a local business. While reading, participants are encouraged to fill out the book search and read books to fit into each of described categories.
