Summer Reading Starts Now!

Summer Reading for middle and high-schoolers is live at Framingham Public Library! Many of you have signed up already, but if you have yet to do so, here's how you can:

 

  1. Stop by either the Main Library or the McAuliffe Branch. There will be binder with a sign up form in each of the Teen Areas. Just fill out your name, grade, school, town, and email, and you're good to go.
  2. Once you've filled out the form, grab one of our Universe of Stories drawstring backpacks just for signing up! It contains a Universe of Stories bookmark, a Summer Reading Program book mark (which includes information on all of our summer programs this year), and a 10-hour reading slip.
  3. Every time you read 10 hours, fill out a new 10-hour reading slip and hand it in at the main desk for a free prize from the prize cart. The more you read, the more you win!
  4. When filling this out, make sure you select which of the six raffle prizes you’d like to be entered to win. The options are: Arts & crafts, Movies, Manga/Anime, Fortnite, Comics, and Drone!
  5. At the end of Summer Reading Ice Cream Party, we’ll draw a winner for each for each of the raffle prizes. The more you read, the more chances you have to win!

BTW, any reading you do this summer counts: for example, magazines, graphic novels, news, books for fun, cereal boxes, etc.—-not just books for school!
