Youth Summer Reading Program 2020

Hello to all the families, and hello to the summer - I can't believe it's here! I am so sorry to not have met everyone yet, but hope in due time we can get acquainted as services slowly begin to resume. 
This summer is going to look a little different, but I hope youth can still have a lot of fun with the summer program I have planned. We are going virtual, starting June 29th with our newest software, Beanstack. Once signed up for Beanstack, reading hours can be logged in the traditional summer reading program. Once 10 hours have been read - email to get your t-shirt reward! Your entire family can live under one Beanstack account, so it makes tracking hours easy - on the website, or within the Beanstack Tracker app. 
You will also find a second program within Beanstack called, A Magical Martha's Vineyard Adventure. Become the hero in this interactive story-based program as you try and break the curse put on Martha's Vineyard by a wicked wizard. Fairytale characters have been unleashed from their storybooks and need help getting back to their books. Complete fun activities throughout the summer across the Vineyard, and in your own backyard to earn digital badges and save the Vineyard! 

All the libraries have teamed up to offer a Battle of the Books competition to tweens and teens. In August, both age groups will compete in book trivia, via Zoom, to win prizes! Find the booklists below and information on signing up for the competition!

Please contact me with any questions at any time via email:

I do have paper logs for those who would rather skip virtual logging, so please reach out to me to arrange pickup. The Magical Martha's Vineyard Adventure program is completely virtual. See below for all our summer programming details!
