Summer Reading 2018

Summer Reading at the Cambridge Public Library

STEP ONE:  SET A SUMMER READING GOAL!

You can choose how many books you’d like to read this summer, how much time you’d like to spend reading, OR make a goal of your own!

STEP TWO: READ!

Share your progress with a librarian whenever you visit so you may add to our wall of music and select a prize.

STEP THREE: CELEBRATE!

When you meet your goal, visit the Library for a certificate to show off all your hard work.

Looking for book suggestions? Ask your CPL Librarian!  Or have a look at some of our favorites here.
