Summer Reading Programs *Kids * Teens * Adults*

It’s summer and even in difficult times, your library is bringing you summer reading fun. We’ll be running programs for adults, teens, and children from June 29th to August 14th.

Our summer program is made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Belmont Public Library and the Belmont Center Business Association.


Gardens and crafts, postcards and book reviews, oh my! Check out some of your contributions that you’ve shared with the library over the past few weeks here.


For adults, teens, and kids! Want to try some new things this summer and have a chance to win generous gift cards to businesses throughout Belmont Center? Try one of our weekly challenges all according to theme and see if you are one of our winners! Themes include Game Week, Travel Week, Outdoor Week, and more.


Sign up here starting June 29th. For Toddlers and preschoolers and kids up to sixth grade. Can you go on a bike ride? Read by a flashlight? Recommend a book to us? If those sound easy and fun, then you will love our 2020 Summer Reading Challenge! Sign up anytime starting June 29th through August 14th, 2020 and see how many of our fun activities you can complete! If you complete 10, earn a virtual badge.
