Join us for a summer of fantasy, fairy tales, and mythology! All ages are welcome to take part in this free program.

Please call the library at 508-763-8600 or email info@plumblibrary.com to sign-up!  Then start reading and completing challenges from June 20 through August 8. (Yes, listening to audiobooks and being read to all count!)

Your Bingo Cards, Challenge Checklist, and Progress Logs can be downloaded and printed from the Summer Library Program Page.

By participating and finishing a log, you will be eligible for prizes and end of program awards. In addition, you will also be helping us attain our goal of 100 completed logs by August 8 so we can be entered into the first-ever “First Lady of the Commonwealth and Blades Summer Reading Challenge” Bruins prize drawing.

Although we will not be able to offer in-house library programs this summer, please check our Event Calendar to save the dates of all our library-sponsored at-home and in the community programs!

Also, check our Events Calendar for more information about programs happening through the summer.
