The Hazen Memorial Library of Shirley takes part in the Massachusetts Summer Reading Program. This program strives to keep children reading over the summer months and has awards associated with each reading level.

The Hazen Memorial Library’s annual Summer Reading Program is a beloved tradition for people of all ages! It’s fun, helps kids keep their reading skills strong, and promotes the joy and love of reading. That’s why it is so important that we continue this treasured program in 2020. This summer’s program will look a little different so that it’s easy for everyone to participate in a way that helps maintain the safety and health of our communities. This year’s program, “Imagine Your Story,” kicks off July 1st and continues through August 20th. It will be offered primarily online and will feature incentive prizes and drawings, special virtual events, fun learning activities to try at home, craft and activity bags for all ages and more for all four age groups (birth to pre-K, children, teens/tweens, adults). You’ll find lots of cool things to do at home as well as Virtual Events, from craft demonstrations to book discussions. Please check out our website and Facebook page for more information about all of our events and programs. We will have two Story Walks® outside of the Library that we would love for you to read and please look at our Children’s Room window for Scavenger hunts and/or Eye Spy fun.
