Summer Reading!

BML Summer Reading Program

“Tails and Tales”

Please Register each child Here!

How it Works

8-week program runs June 21 – August 17, 2021

Summer Reading Packets pickup begins June 21st in the entry as well as at 6/22 Story Time and 6/24 Music Time in Field Park at 10:30am.

Monitor your child’s progress & distribute prizes as earned each week.  Weeks run Tuesday through Monday.

At the end of the 8th week, children who have completed the program will be entered into a $50 gift certificate drawing.

A bonus entry will be given for filling out the “Tails & Tales” sheet with the titles of favorite books read this summer.

Please send a photo of your child’s record to mlehmacher@brainerdlibrary.org or kmoore@brainerdlibrary.org to let us know that your child has completed the program.  The drawing will take place on August 24.

Throughout the summer, there will be themed craft kits for pickup.  4 drop-in craft nights will be held on Wednesday evenings at Field Park. Stay tuned for dates and details! Pizza & refreshments will be served!
