ADVENTURE BEGINS AT YOUR LIBRARY is the theme this summer. This program is designed for ages 11-18 (kids ages 11 & 12 may participate in the Children's Summer Reading Program but not both).

Start Date: Monday, June 17th
End Date: Friday, August 9th

How Do You Participate? It's EASY!

Borrow some books and start reading. Every book, graphic novel, and audio book you read counts!! Keep track on a reading log.

How Does It Work?

For every book you read, you may request 1 Book Buck at the circulation desk. Every book, graphic novel, and audio book you read counts!! 

Once a week, we’ll have a different pin to collect. Collect all 8 by coming to the library once a week all summer.

What Are Book Bucks?

Book Bucks are Amherst Town Library "currency" and may be redeemed as follows:

  • 1 Book Buck can be redeemed for 1 book from the Friends Book Sale Shelves
