Summer reading is important to your child! And the Northfield Public Library has a fun way to encourage reading.

"Every Hero has a Story" is the Summer Reading Program for kids and teens!  This year we have created challenging reading BINGO sheets for all ages, from “read to me” kids through high school teens.  The BINGO sheets have been designed by the Library Pages and the Teen Advisory Board!

You can pick up BINGO sheets at the Library beginning June 1st. You earn a prize for every 3 BINGOS you complete. Summer reading rewards and more BINGO sheets can be picked up during Booker’s open hours at all sites or at the  Public Library at 210 Washington St.

We will have  “Story Times for All Ages”Story times in the park near Booker! Children’s Librarian Kathy Ness and the Library Pages will present a variety of story time experiences throughout

the day. Story times at the parks Monday, Tuesday & Wednesdays. Plus on Fridays at 10 am mornings at the Library (City Hall after July 13th) with early childhood specialist Julia Daly.
