On Your Mark ... Get Set … Read!

Everyone is invited to join the Glastonbury Reading Team when the Summer Reading Club kicks off on June 13. The Children’s Department program is for children ages birth up through grade 6. A special baby program, Tiny Team, has been designed especially for our littlest library users.

Tiny Team ~ Ages 0-18 months
Share nursery rhymes, songs and board books with the little ones to earn age-appropriate rewards. Pick up a copy of the Baby Program in the Children’s Department.

Little League ~ Ages 5 & under, not entering Kindergarten
This read-to-me program is for young children to enjoy listening to stories, and for new readers who may read and listen to reach the goal of reading 20 minutes or more per day. To register and record your reading, click here.

Big League ~ Entering grades K-6
This program for elementary school age children is part of the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge. Children will enter each day they 20 minutes or more. They will also list the titles of the books as they finish each one. The total number of days and books read will sent to the Glastonbury schools at the end of the summer.
