The Marlborough Public Library is happy to announce their Virtual Summer Reading Program: Imagine Your Story, which begins on June 19, 2020. Children, from newborns to rising 5th graders, may register on Beanstack or through the Beanstack Track app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Participants can be read to or read on their own and collect a virtual badge for each hour of reading that they accomplish. For every three hours of reading, children earn a virtual raffle ticket that they can enter into a raffle drawing of their choice. We have a plethora of raffle prize packs, such as unicorn, fairy tale and mermaid themed prizes. Children can read up to 60 hours and participate in several activities to collect all of the virtual badges and complete the summer reading program.
Besides Beanstack, we'll have a small amount of weekly Take-Home Craft Kits and activity sheets, which will be available alongside our holds pick-up program. If you do make a craft with one of our craft kits, please post your creation on Facebook or Instagram and tag us (#MPL #MarlboroughPublicLibrary). You can also email us a picture at [email protected] and we'll post it. Ms. Kerry and Ms. Jennie will continue their weekly storytime programs, along with performances by Joe & Stephanie, Dance Me a Story and virtual visits with Dublin, our Read-to-a-Dog.
Patrons can participate in our contactless holds pick-up program for Marlborough items, such as books and DVDs. Ebooks and audiobooks are also available online via the Libby app. If there are any questions, please call us at 508-624-6900.
Please Note: Our programming may occasionally be interrupted or rescheduled due to holidays, school vacations, weather, illness or other circumstances beyond our control. Please view our children’s programming here for the most up to date information.
