Summer Reading for Kids, Teens, and Grownups at the Vineyard Haven Library

Registration for the Summer Reading Program at the Vineyard Haven Public Library begins Monday, June 30th, 2014. Children may visit the Children's Room at the library to sign up, log the books they read, and earn prizes including a T-shirt and gift certificates from local businesses. Teens ages 12 to 18 can register online. Teens who register online can visit the library circulation desk to claim a prize, just for signing up.

The Martha's Vineyard Library Association is hosting a special event to kick off the Summer Reading Program. On Saturday, July 5th, comic juggler Bill Ross will perform at the Agricultural Hall in West Tisbury at 11am. This family event will also feature face painting, popcorn, and all around fun. Admission is $4; doors open at 10:30am.

Free programs for children at VH Library this summer include a concert by Ellen Allard for ages 4 and up on July 8th at 11am, musical story times with Joyce Maxner on Tuesday July 15th at 10am and 11am, and concerts by Jeremy Berlin on July 22nd at 10am and 11am. Marvelous Marvin will bring circus arts, magic and music to the library on August 7 at 4pm. On Wednesday August 6th, visit the "Whalemobile", a life-sized inflatable humpback whale. Children can go inside the whale, hear the sounds of different species of whales, touch real whale parts, and learn how to help protect these animals (at the Tisbury School). These events are made possible by a contribution from The Anderson Foundation.

Additional special guests planned for children's programs include Kathy Forrester, Emily Solarazza, Phyllis Vecchia, storybook character Ladybug Girl, and Susie Bowman from Felix Neck. Details will be available at the library and on our website, www.vhlibrary.org.

For the fourth year, the Vineyard Haven Library is offering a Summer Reading Program for “Grownups”. Adults who keep track of their summer reading will be eligible to win a gift certificate and other prizes sponsored by the Friends of the Library. To participate, patrons should create an online account by visiting the library homepage. Patrons may log the books they read over the summer, write reviews, and register for prizes.

The summer reading program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Programs for children are supported by the Friends of the Library and are free for participants.
