From the Director

karenSummer along the Shoreline is a wonderful time. It’s a great time to tackle those books you’ve been meaning to get to all winter, or to simply indulge in some fun, light reads. The theme for this summer is all about superheroes; those found in the pages of gorgeous graphic novels and those amazing people right in your community!

Our children’s summer reading program is Every Hero has a Story, and the tween/teen program is Unmasked. Both programs include exciting events like comics creation, live Greek Myth performance, super hero training camp, and a Disney sing-along featuring songs from your favorite movie heroes and heroines. Visit the youth services page for a complete calendar of events.

Adults can get in on the summer reading fun, too. The adult summer reading program is Escape from the Ordinary. Whether it’s reading a new genre or participating in new activities, we invite you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.

To take part in the adult summer reading challenge and be eligible for a prize drawing, all you have to do is read books, then submit a one-word review and rating for each book you read. You’ll receive one ticket per book to be entered into a drawing for Branford Bucks. We are planning some extraordinary events for adults this summer, too. Check in at our reference department for more details.
