Celebrate Massachusetts Family Literacy Month

November is Family Literacy Month!

What can you do with your children to encourage literacy?
  • Visit the library for a storytime, music program, or book group. Visit the Children's Website for event information. We have a variety of storytimes and programs for infants through grades 4!
  • Encourage your child to read or listen to an audiobook. Find a book in our catalog or ask a librarian for a suggestion (781) 455-7559 ext. 204.
  • Have a family read-aloud night. You can find many books that can be read-aloud and enjoyed by all ages. For starters, try: E.B. White's Stuart Little, Beverly Cleary's Henry Huggins, or Judy Blume's The Pain and the Great One.
  • Participate in our Read-a-thon! You can win prizes and enter a raffle to win 1 ticket per family to a show at the Wheelock Theatre. Register online or at the Children's desk.
