Summer Reading Program

Summer has returned and with it the Malden Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. To celebrate we have a number of beeautiful events, tasty treats, prizes, and other goodies to keep you active and engaged this summer. To start we have our annual Summer Reading Kickoff and Ice Cream Social. It all starts there: Thursday, June 22nd at 1pm.

At the kickoff we will have summer reading sign up for Adults, Teens, and Children, a selection of games, goodie bags, and of course frozen ice cream treats. We will also provide our calendar of summer events so you can plan your activities, wisely! And for those of you who would like to skip the line for registration, preregistration is available on our Beanstack page:   This year Beanstack even has an app available in the Apple and Google play stores. It makes logging your minutes, participating in games, and qualifying for prizes much easier on the go. We even have a handy guide to use it more effectively: Guide to setting up and using Beanstack

This year’s theme is based on the CSLP theme of “All Together Now”, which focuses on community and togetherness. We have adapted that theme to focus on the idea that “Little things done together make a big impact”. Whether it is reading for a few minutes on your lunch break, picking up litter on a walk, or committing to small acts of random kindess, the small moments add up to big improvements in our lives and communities. So join us, and do some little things just to see how big they become! Welcome to our Hive!

Welcome to Our Hive is sponsored by Preotle, Lane & Associates and Friends of the Malden Public Library.  Many thanks to them for making all this possible!
