Kids Summer Reading
Summer Reading 2015
June 16 - September 1, 2015
Mayor Setti Warren invites all kids to help Newton meet his Summer Reading Challenge!
How much will you read this summer? Kids in preschool through 6th grade can use our online reading log to keep track of the time spent reading alone (or with parents, siblings or friends). Audiobooks and Ebooks count too!
There is so much going on this summer! Check out our events calendar. All registered kids are invited to an end-of-summer celebration on Wednesday, August 19th, 5:30-8:30pm. We will play giant board games and eat pizza.
- Read 5 hours and you can add a dog to our Readers Reach Out bulletin board. Our charity this year is K9s for Warriors, www.k9sforwarriors.org.
- Make reading a habit! Read 5 times a week for each week of the summer reading program (6/16-9/1), either by yourself or with someone else, and win a prize.
- Write a book review, design a book cover, or otherwise create a representation for books that you read, and we will put them up on Pinterest and on display in the children’s room.
- Stay tuned. Mayor Setti Warren will share summer discounts from local businesses.
“Every Hero Has a Story" is sponsored by your local library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. Our goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
