SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2020

Imagine Your Story New York State Public Libraries Summer Reading Program 2020 Join us at Massena Public Library or the Brasher Falls Library this summer as we celebrate reading. Imagine Your Story is designed to encourage children to continue reading during summer vacation so that valuable reading skills won’t be lost. We will offer a variety of activities for children of all ages. This year Summer Reading will be a bit different as most programs will occur digitally. Thanks to Stewart’s and our partnership with Scholastic we will be offering ice cream certificates and free books this year as part of our incentives for reading. Summer Reading will be held from July 6th 2020 - August 14th 2020 in conjunction with the collaborative Summer Reading program with the many libraries in the North Country Library System (NCLS). You can register online or call/e-mail/facebook messenger.
