WINCHENDON — The Beals Memorial Library invites the whole community to set sail for some good books this summer by joining their Summer Reading Club. This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities.” The library will have fun programs, activities, stories and more for the whole family to enjoy. Register now to participate.

From June 27 to Aug. 6, the Beals will be celebrating and promoting literacy with their Summer Reading Club, open to participants of all ages. Children who sign up can read and record up to 9 hours this summer and for every 90 minutes of reading, they’ll get to spin the wheel to win some fabulous prizes. Teens and adults can join in on the fun, too. Read, record and rate up to 10 books this summer. For every book you log, get one entry for a chance to win a prize of your choice from a selection of amazing prizes. Teen and adult participants who read 10 books will receive a special browsing bag to fill with a bag of books from the library’s book sale.

Splash into the library’s summer programs by joining them on Wednesday, June 29, at 2 p.m. on the library lawn for the Beals Beach Bash. There will be music, crafts, lawn games and more. Be sure to wear a swimsuit and bring a beach towel for some water fun.

Registration for the Summer Reading Club is open now and can be done in person or online at https://bealslibrary.beanstack.org/reader365.

The Summer Reading Club’s programs and events are sponsored by the Friends of the Beals Memorial Library and the Winchendon Cultural Council. Some of the prizes this summer were generously provided by Subway of Winchendon, Lickity Splitz, Brooks Auto Services, Toy Town Barber, and the Glen Caffe.
