Adult Summer Reading Program June 16-August 15

Log2Click Here button to sign up for Teen Summer Reading ProgramWe have worked hard to create an all digital summer reading program, for readers of all ages! The theme this year is Imagine Your Story! Click Register to enter your name and email into the program. When you are ready to begin logging books, click the Log Books Here button. You may log your reading of all ebooks, audio books and magazines accessed 
through the Library’s digital resources. Each entry for library items you read will enter your name in a drawing for the prize of your choice, paid for
by the Friends of the Beaman Library and by generous donations from the community.  If you would like to donate to our summer reading program, please check back next week for more information.

We are rethinking our library processes and are developing plans to bring you curbside pickup, and more library services. As these services become available, you may include any books or magazines checked out at our library in your summer reading log. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate our quickly changing environment. We are trying our best to safely serve the needs of our patrons and the community. Please check the website at for the latest information. 

We are here to help. If you have any difficulty using the Library’s digital resources, please email or call us at 508-835-3711 and we will offer virtual tech support.

Take care,

Anna Shaw Library Director
