Mattapoisett Library Summer Reading Program

The Mattapoisett Free Public Library is excited to announce the kickoff of the 2024 Summer Reading Program. This year, we are offering our annual self-led reading program for children ages 0-12 to foster a love of reading for pleasure. In addition to the reading program, we have a fantastic lineup of events and activities planned throughout the summer. Participants will have the chance to earn raffle tickets for end-of-summer prizes, making the reading journey even more rewarding.

            It all begins on Saturday, June 22 at 10:30 am, with a special visit from the Wareham Gatemen. This event will feature the Gatemen reading their beloved stories, followed by a fun catch session. Attendees can also look forward to some extra surprises. No registration is needed for this event.

            Continuing the excitement, on Wednesday, June 26 at 3 pm, we invite children ages 5 and up to make their own calming bottles. This sensory activity is perfect for anyone looking to relax and have fun. Registration is required for this event.

            On Thursday, June 27 at 10 am, we begin our Storytime at Munro Park series in collaboration with the Mattapoisett Land Trust. Bring a blanket and join us for delightful stories, activities and songs. In the event of poor weather, storytime will be held at the library. No registration required.

            Friday, June 28, marks the return of Baby Storytime at 11 am in the children’s room. This session includes songs, rhymes, stories, and bells, and is recommended for babies aged 0 to 24 months. Baby Storytime will continue weekly on Fridays at 11 am. No registration is required.

            Later that day, on Friday, June 28 at 2 pm, children ages 8 and up can join us for “Sewing a Rainbow,” a fun and creative activity where participants will learn to sew a paper plate rainbow. This event is suitable for both beginners and experts. Registration is required for this event.

            To finish off the month of June, on Saturday, June 29 at 10:30 am, we invite toddlers to participate in a Hand Stamp Flower art session. This messy and creative activity is recommended for ages 2 and up. Registration is required.

            We look forward to seeing you at these exciting events designed to make the start of summer memorable for everyone. If you would like to learn more about our Summer Reading Program, please visit the children’s room or by visiting our website at
