Participants can sign up on Beanstack to keep track of reading, win badges and collect raffle tickets to win prizes at the end of the summer. Paper reading logs will also be available at the library.

Visit for more information and the calendar with planned events, all of which will be held outdoors at the Council on Aging, 3 Hoosac St. Separate registration is required for each event.
