Summer Reading!

Summer reading

MONDAY, June 17 - FRIDAY, August 23

Summer is here, and that means summer reading! This year, you can explore a universe of stories and take part in the Library’s Summer Reading Program. We have programs for adults, teens, tweens, and kids with scratch tickets, raffles, and of course prizes!
Here’s how it works: Each time you check out materials from the Library, you get an instant-win scratch ticket (max one per day). Scratch off the coating to see if you win a prize. Then use your ticket to enter our grand prize raffle. We’ll hold grand prize drawings for adults, teens, tweens, and kids at the end of the summer. For more information, including our prize offerings, check out our website.

Name Our 3D Printer

Add a heading
We're so excited to welcome a new 3D Printer to the Brookline Village Library, generously funded by the Brookline Library Foundation, but we need your help choosing a name! Our staff helped us pick out several possible namesakes, but it's up to you to choose which one's the best fit. Vote here for your choice.

Introducing the Memoir Collection

Love memoirs? You're in luck! Coming soon, we'll have a new section of books for you to browse: the memoir collection. The memoir collection will be located next to the biography section at all Library locations. In the memoir collection, you'll find books about lives written by those who lived them, including autobiography. Books about lives written by another person can be found in the biography collection. Not sure where to find a book, or looking for a recommendation? Our staff is happy to help.
