Summer 2014 programs

No matter your age, we have the Summer Reading program for you! Summer Reading starts June 24th, and will include activities for the whole family.

Kids' Summer Reading

This year's theme is "Fizz! Boom! Read!" Elementary-Age readers earn raffle tickets for the amount of time they read. Raffle winners are drawn each week. Pre-Readers can join as "Read-To-Me" participants and receive raffle chances for books read aloud to them. Also, check out our programs this summer for kids and families.

Teen Summer Reading

This year's theme is "Spark a Reaction!" Sign up, log your reading hours, and enter a raffle to win books, gift cards, and other cool prizes.

Adult Summer Reading

This year's theme is "Fizz! Boom! Read!" The first 50 sign ups will receive a Chicopee Public Library sticker. Submit book reviews throughout the summer to enter a raffle for prizes.
