Map of the world labeled with the "7 seas" and the words "Oceans of Possibilities"
The Summer Reading Program begins on June 4, and we’ll have a reading challenge for adults as well as for children!
What you do:

Pick up a map and stickers at the library to start your challenge. Select seven book titles to read between June 4 and August 13 that relate to this year’s theme: “Oceans of Possibilities”. Record the titles of your books on the stickers, and affix one sticker to each of the ‘Seven Seas’ on the map. Turn in your completed map at our circulation desk by August 13.

What you win:

Every finisher wins a small prize from a variety of items and certificates to be redeemed at our Friends’ bookstore. These prizes will be redeemed upon turning in your finished map. All finishers will be entered into an ‘end-of-summer’ drawing to win a Longwood Gardens family pass!


Calling all teenagers!

We have programs especially for you, including games, movies, a teen advisory board, and more! Visit our events calendar for details.
