Thomas Crane Public Library: your gateway to amazing stories from around the globe!

Come celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Read Around the World during our Adult Summer Reading program. Expand your worldview and read great books from authors and settings in countries all over the globe. Watch our website and Facebook and Twitter feeds for inspiration. From now through September 1, adults are encouraged to read as many books as they can from different countries. You’ll get a peek into other people’s experiences and also win the opportunity to take home some cool prizes!

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up an informational brochure at any public service desk at any one of our branches. 
  • Log the books you read online. You will need an email address; if you don't have an email address simply visit the Reference Desk or Device Advice Tuesdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Main library for help with setting one up.
  • Each book read earns a chance to win one of six prize baskets, which will contain books and other goodies - come by the library to see them as the summer progresses. A raffle for the baskets will be held at the end of the program.
  • We'd like to give a huge thank you to the Friends of the Library for purchasing the raffle baskets for this program!

Come to the top floor of the main library, call 617-376-1316, or email if you have any questions.

This summer, why let the kids have all the fun?
