Summer Reading

Summer Reading is coming! This summer, we’ll be bringing Summer Reading to you online. From June 15 – August 14, we'll have reading prompts, fun activities, and online programs for patrons of all ages – plus weekly raffles and grand prize drawings for gift cards to local businesses.

Supporting our community is what the Library does best. That’s why this summer, for every person who registers between June 1 and June 30, the Friends of the Brookline Public Library will make a donation to the Brookline Food Pantry.

Pre-registration begins June 1. For more information, visit our website.

Digital Library Services

Though our Library buildings are closed, we're still here to help you fill your days with books, stories, and art. We have many online resources--from virtual programs to answering your reference questions to digital books, movies, magazines, and more! Check out our website for a full list of resources and events or ask a Librarian for help. Looking for resources and activities for kids? Check out this page.
