Visit your neighborhood library and set your own reading goal this summer. As you work toward your goal, tell your librarian! Each time you tell them about your progress, they'll add a prize to a jar. Let's see how many jars we can fill this summer to raffle off as prizes!

When you’re not reading, you’ll find nonstop entertainment at the library from magic and science to yoyo-ing and hula hooping. We’ll have baby animals to pet, reptiles to admire, things to make, and movies to watch. And be sure to check out our free and discounted passes to museums and zoos available with a Minuteman library card.

If you are planning to attend one of our events with a group of 6 or more, please call the library before your visit.
