Win prizes in summer reading challenge

No matter how old you are, you can join a Nashua Public Library summer reading program.

The theme of this year’s programs is outer space: “A Universe of Stories.” Readers can challenge themselves to earn raffle tickets and prizes as they read.

“Children who don’t read during summer vacation fall behind when school starts in the fall,” said Assistant Library Director Jenn Hosking. “This decline in their reading abilities increases as they get older. The library wants to help parents maintain their children’s skills by motivating kids to read every day.” Summer reading programs do just that. And they’re available for all ages, to make reading a family affair.

The more time you spend reading, the more chances you have to win prizes. Log the amount of time you read at nashualibrary.beanstack.org, or by downloading the new Beanstack app, for Android or iPhone. If you have questions, call the library at (603) 589-4600.

Come to weekly programs for babies, toddlers, school-age kids, teens, and adults. Find out more on the library’s events calendar.
