Summer Reading Program 2023

School will soon be out for the summer which means there will be plenty of time for reading.  Our theme this summer is Find Your Voice!. The Summer Reading Program is simple: You read books, you log your minutes on Read Squared  (from June 21 on) and we help 2 endangered animals. This year we are reading to help a Llama and an Arctic Wolf. Program registration begins on June 21 with a Summer Reading Kick Off in the side yard from 1:00 - 3:30. Stop by the library any time after that get more information about the Summer Reading Program. We have events planned for the summer and notices about those will be here on our website,, in the library, and many will be on FB. As always, library programs are FREE.

There’s also a serious side to summer reading. Research has shown that reading over the summer prevents summer reading loss. “Studies also indicate students who read recreationally outperformed those who don’t. Students read more when they can choose materials based on their own interests,” said Library Director Mrs. Grimmett. “Our libraries are committed to supporting lifelong learning and educational enrichment for all families.” To learn more about the summer reading events at the library come in to the library,  call the library at 781-982-2139, or check here on the website. 

We started using ReadSquared in 2020 to log our Summer Reading Time. Take a moment to explore Read Squared. Not only are there games and fun things to do, there are also reading lists and read alike suggestions to help you find a great new read. Remember that the library is open 24/7 with eResources like Libby and hoopla. And teens can borrow two audio books a week for free with Sync and Sora. And the librarians here at Abington Public LIbrary are always here to help! We love to read and want you to love to read too.
