Summer Reading Program: 

June 29 - August 19

"Every Hero Has a Story"

When the kids are out of school, our library keeps them engaged. This summer, we’ll have free performances by special guests like Creature Teachers and Mike the Bubble Man! 

Every Saturday, we’ll sing along with musicians like Little Groove and Vanessa Trien. Look for a story time, book club, craft or activity each weekday. Our calendar is packed with enriching entertainment!

If you’re planning a vacation, stop by the children’s room and pick up DVDs to get you through the long ride. Of course, there are plenty of books and audiobooks to choose from too. We have the Watertown Public Schools’ summer reading lists for every grade level and all of the titles you need are set aside in a special collection. 

Whether your children stick to recommended reading or explore other options, we encourage them to track their reading in a log they keep at the library. 

See a children’s librarian for more information on how to participate. What would summer be without a reading program?!
