This year's Summer Reading theme is Tails and Tales, so why not try a story featuring animals? Our display of books (and a few movies) includes fiction and nonfiction for adults and kids of all ages - featuring everything from fantastical beasts like dragons to incredible real-life sea creatures to our own pet dogs. Each item is available through the Minuteman Library Network, so all you need is your library card.
And there's still time to sign up for the Summer Reading Program! Kids can log your reading to earn a kit that you can use to create your very own, stuffed-animal Lib Buddy. Continue reading up to 50 hours to earn extra features and accessories to further personalize your Lib Buddy. Adults can read for 20 hours and earn a $1 voucher to the Friends of the Brookline Library Book Sale (many of the books cost $1 or less). Continue reading up to 50 hours to be entered into a grand prize raffle for gift cards to local Brookline businesses. Sign up here!
Create Your Own Lib Buddy
Pinkypie the Lib Buddy reigns over the castle in the Brookline Village children's room. You can get a kit to make your own Lib Buddy by signing up for our summer reading program and reading for 20 hours! Want to learn how to customize your Lib Buddy? Check out our crafting videos!
