Hey kids! Head to the library and ask a librarian to issue you a Summer Reading Passport.

You’ll get your picture taken and we’ll mark your passport with an official issue stamp.

Throughout the summer, time your reading, visit the library and complete reading challenges to earn treats and prize tickets.

When you reach passport checkpoints during your reading journey, come back to the library to get prize tickets and enter them to win amazing prizes like bikes, book bags filled with fun things, a pizza and movie party at the library, or the chance to be librarian for the day!

Come back for Summer Reading Wrap-Up on Saturday, August 14 at 1:00pm on the library lawn.

Prize raffles will be drawn on this day and we’ll have special activities to celebrate a summer filled with reading!

Share photos of your reading journey.

Take pictures while completing passport challenges and use #BHMLSummerReading to document your journey. Tag us on Facebook and Instagram @bbhlibrary.

Adult Summer Reading Bingo

Hey adults! We have a special reading challenge for you. Grab a Reading Bingo card at the front desk of the library or ask for one at our walk-up window. Don’t worry…there will be prizes for you, too!
