Bedford, New Hampshire


Summer Reading Program for Children (ages 3-12) Registration Begins

Summer is a great time for kids to relax and read books just for fun. It’s also the perfect time to bring your youngsters down to the library to register for our annual Summer Reading Program! This year’s theme, “Every Hero Has a Story”, will feature Superheroes, but real-life heroes, as well.

At the time they come in to register, each child receives a special bookmark, reading chart and a packet of program information.

Reading team assignments are determined by luck of the draw.

Please have your Bedford Library Card with you.

Summer Reading Program: Touch-a-Truck

Who doesn’t watch in amazement when a screaming fire truck streaks by, or wonder what it would be like to drive a police car, with lights flashing, on the way to a crime scene? Or, how about those giant dump trucks and loaders at the construction site! You are invited to join us for an up-close inspection of some of the awesome vehicles we see around us every day. You can even climb on some of them! Then you can be refreshed with some lemonade and cookies! We don’t know for sure, but we could possibly have a surprise visitor or two!

Family Event

Registration begins July 13

Midgrade Book Club Event


Some heroes are found in books. Midgrade Book Club members (and those who are curious), listen up! Instead of the normal year-round schedule, we are offering one general summer session on Monday, July 20 at 4:00pm.

Come prepared to share what you’ve been reading (yay or yuck) and what you would like the club to read in the future. Miss Kim will have some ideas, as well. She will have some activities prepared, and, of course, some snacks! Come on over & check it out!
