On Your Mark, Get Set... READ!
Get a jump start on summer by seeing what we've got planned here at the library, learn about our summer reading programs, and find out more about what's happening elsewhere in Quincy!
This summer's theme is all about sports, fitness, all kinds of activity, and boy have we got a lot to do. Bubbles, magicians, puppets, arts and crafts, concerts, storytimes, live animals, book clubs, science, and more! So much more, it would be silly for us to try and list it all in one blog post. Please take a look at our calendar for the events coming up this summer. Want to see our events broken down by age range? Take a look here to see what's going on for your kids. Summer events at the library start up on June 27th with our annual weekly Art-To-Go program and continue through the last week of August.
Also starting on June 27th are our new summer reading programs. Use our online reading tracker to log your books all summer long. You can also win a coupon for the Friends of the Library book store, as well as complete challenges all summer for chances to win a raffle prize. Come to events, check back on this blog, and do scavenger hunts at the Main Library and North Quincy Branch for additional raffle entries. Just remember to ask library staff for the passwords! Also check the summer reading page for the summer reading suggestions from the Quincy Public Schools. Remember, those lists are suggestions only! You can read anything you want!
Looking for more to do this summer? The City of Quincy has a lot going on! The library is participating in the city's Discover Quincy programs with several special Friday evenings and a storytime at Wollaston Beach, but there's a lot more in addition to those! Take a look at the Quincy Public Schools community programs information page for info on summer camps, classes, and other programs.
We can't wait for summer to start and we hope we'll see you at the library!
