Tails and Tales
2021 Summer Reading Program for readers of all ages!

June 18 – August 20

Readers of all ages will explore the animal kingdom this summer as the Athol Public Library presents “Tails and Tales.” We’ll have fun activities, special events, workshops, and take-homes kits. To participate, just sign up at https://athollibrary.beanstack.org/. Log the minutes you read, earn tickets for wonderful prizes, and help us reach our community goal of 200,000 minutes. If we succeed, our Friends group will make a donation to animals in need! To learn more, click here.

The 2021 Summer Reading Program is open to everyone, babies through adults, with programs, prize drawings, storytimes, and more. For a full calendar of everything happening this summer, click here.

Summer begins with a grand kick-off in the park on Friday, June 18, from 11:00 – 1:00. Drop in any time between 11:00 and 1:00 to register for summer reading, play some games, enter prize raffles, select some free books from the Friends Big Book Give-Away, collect your summer reader lawn sign, and take your photo with our friendly library dinosaur! (Can’t make the kick-off? You can register any time at https://athollibrary.beanstack.org/)
