Summer Reading is about to begin at the Malden Public Library! Residents are welcome to attend the parade-style “drive-through” event on Wednesday, July 15th from 2-3 PM by driving or walking by the Park Street entrance to greet librarians and learn more about the program. There will be music, balloons and much more. All driving are asked to remain in their vehicles throughout the event. Although this year the very popular ice cream social cannot be held, long-term sponsor Dairy Delight will again provide ice cream treats for children in celebration of this year’s theme “Imagine Your Story.”
The program will look different this year as everything will be done virtually. There will be remote programs for children, teens, and adults, including weekly story times, creative crafts, book chats, reading challenges and prizes. Those unable to attend Wednesday’s event may participate in summer reading by calling the Library to schedule a curbside pickup of this year’s summer reading books, calendar and schedule. Stay tuned for news of a late summer drive-in concert and family movie night!
