BML Summer Reading Program 2021: “Tails & Tales”

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 have their names entered into their age group’s drawing to win a $50 gift certificate.  A bonus entry will be given for children who fill out the lined “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 make-it, take-it crafts available for pickup at the library.  Four drop-in craft nights will take place on Wednesday evenings at Field Park throughout the summer. Stay tuned for dates and details! Pizza and refreshments will be served!
