The “Choose Your Own Reading Adventure” summer reading program for youth at Peterborough Town Library, 2 Concord St., begins June 21 and will run through Aug. 30.

Activities will kick off with a concert featuring Ben Rudnick and Friends on the library's river terrace on Friday, June 21, at 6:30 p.m. Events are planned throughout the rest of the summer, all featuring adventure themes: build-your-own adventure with LEGO, an “in-flight” movie adventure, a musical adventure with Monadnock Music, a go-on-an-adventure hike, scavenger hunts, a be-an-animal- adventurer program and a draw-your-own-adventure program making comics.

Family Storytime and Baby Storytime will meet weekly to explore language together through stories, movements and crafts. Check out the Family Programs page at for information on all the events.

Register for summer reading by visiting the library and pick out a free book, provided by the Kiwanis Club of Peterborough, to get started. There will be six weeks of raffle prizes for each hour participants read. The more participants read, or listen to stories, the more chances there are to win. Reading logs are due at the end of August, and participants will receive a Toadstool Bookshop coupon and a small prize

Visit for information on all the programs and to register for events. Registration is required for many summer programs, so materials are available for all participants.  All library events are free and open to the public.
