Summer Reading Kick-Off

Summer Reading Kick-Off 2021

Tuesday, June 29, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm on the library lawn.

Featuring Chewonki @ 11:00am!


Get ready to explore the world through reading! Join us on the library lawn for a day of learning and fun and hopefully sun. Everyone is welcome and we’ll have activities for the whole family.

Summer Reading Passports for Kids

Say ‘Cheese!’ Get your picture taken for your Summer Reading Passport. We will have a special station where you can show off your pearly whites for your passport photo. After your passport is issued, you can start reading and earning prize ticket and special treats!

Adult Summer Reading Bingo

Adults can join in on the summer reading frenzy, too. Grab a Summer Reading Bingo card, then head to the library to start scoping out your reads for the summer.

11:00am-12:00pm—Chewonki: Fins & Flippers

Come learn and explore! Join our friends from Chewonki for a special program called Fins & Flippers. We’ll learn about all sorts of marine mammals and get to see real whale bones…how cool! Please arrive for this event early as we will have a check-in table for contact tracing and special social-distanced seating on the lawn.

Bubbles and Chalk

Help us decorate the Children’s Garden driveway with sidewalk chalk art. We’ll also have the bubble machine blowin’ bubbles all day! Plus, we’ll have Bubbles and Chalk as a recurring event all summer long on Thursdays from 11:00am-12:00pm 🙂

Windjammer Wee Mateys events

Ahoy Wee Mateys! As many of you already know, BHML Summer Reading Kick-Off coincides with Windjammer Days. Check out some of their fun events planned for the same day and throughout the rest of the week.


Please note: although CDC restrictions have been constantly changing throughout the country, we understand that not all of our Summer Reading participants are able to be vaccinated for Covid-19, particularly our Wee-est of Maytees. In order for all attendees to feel comfortable and safe, masks will be required at this event. Thank you for your understanding and your continuing compassion for the health and safety of others.
