Hello reader!

Read on for what's happening at the library this week.

Antique Toys in Children's Room

A toy of a character from Alice in Wonderland.
Recently, a staff member at the Library discovered a treasure trove of antique toys in the Children’s Room. Check out a photo gallery of these fascinating toys. Their history at the Library is something of a mystery, but we believe they were donated quite some time ago.
In an effort to find out who donated these toys, we are enlisting the help of you, our dedicated library patrons. Do you know anything about the history of these toys at the library? Give us a call or send us a message. We’d love to hear from you.

Summer Songfest with Jeannie Mack


FRIDAY, August 17, at 2 PM

Calling all kids and their families! Jeannie Mack will be celebrating summer with her Summer Songfest program of interactive songs. Sing along (in tune, or not), shout out a response (as loud as you can), join in on songs with corresponding actions, and even try your luck at rattling off a tongue-twister or two if you dare!

Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Public Library.

Re-create Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Brookline Village
Have you ever dreamed of being in the iconic parade scene from the beloved 80s classic, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? The Library and the Brookline Interactive Group are giving you the chance to do just that!

We're recreating this scene as part of the Crowdsourced Boston project, and we need your help! We need people to play Ferris, Cameron, Sloan, extras, dancers, band members, and more to make this happen!
Rehearsal will be on the evening of Thursday, August 23, and we will film the dance on the morning of Friday, August 24.

Children who read four or more books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books over the summer.
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is challenging all residents of Massachusetts to read four books this summer – and to share their experience with others.

Here is what Sara, our Library Director, is reading this summer.
