Summer Reading Coming to a Close

The summer is winding down, which means the Everett Public Libraries’ summer reading challenge, Oceans of Possibilities, is almost over! The challenge ends on August 29, and there is just one week left to log your reading minutes so you can reach the grand prize.

Remember, kids will get a pizza party at the library, teens will have a library lock-in, and adults will be entered to win two tickets to the New England Whale Tour.

Reading minutes can be logged via the the Beanstack app or on the Beanstack website.
