How does it work?

Sign up ONLINE, or call the Circulation Desk at 978-448-1167 beginning Tuesday, June 15, 2021. We will be HAPPY to help you get started!

  • Then read, read, read, whatever you like, to your heart's content! (Or listen, listen, listen, if you prefer audiobooks.) All adult books, young adult books, graphic novels, ebooks and audiobooks count.

  • Record your reading ONLINE at gpl.org. Enter the ISBN, or title and author of each book. If you choose to write a short review, we will share it anonymously on this website with your fellow booklovers.
Did someone say PRIZES?

The more you read & record your reading, the greater your chances of winning a weekly prize drawing and earning a super end-of-summer-reading gift card! ($5, $10 & $15 gift card levels)

  • Logging 1 book enters you into all 10 Weekly Prize Drawings! Winners receive a $20 gift card to Toadstool Bookshop.

  • Your summer reading supports a good cause! For every 5 books you read, the GPL Endowment Trust will donate $2 to the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance.

You may also wish to try our Tails & Tales Reading Challenge: Read books from different genres for the opportunity to adopt a marine animal. You will receive the Standard Adoption package from NECWA which includes: an adoption certificate with a color photo of your adopted animal and your name with the date of adoption, a fun fact sheet with more photos and information on your adopted animal, an NECWA magnet, a NECWA decal and the NECWA quarterly newsletter.

All library programs are generously supported by the GPL Endowment Trust.
