Summer Reading 2022

Summer reading is a beloved staple of library services for children. It’s a great tool for fostering a love of reading and helps prevent the summer learning slide!

June 29-August 19, 2022

The Oceans of Possibilities summer reading is free and open to Boonton residents between the ages of 4 and 18. Participants must register for the program in order to access reading logs and be eligible for weekly reading prize raffles. Registration begins Wednesday, June 1. Participants can register any time during the program.

Register to participate here. You’ll need your library card number to sign up.

The library’s main level is open for browsing and borrowing during slightly reduced summer hours. The downstairs Makerspace and History Lounge are open for crafting, reading, studying, etc. — please check availability with the circulation desk before using either meeting room. The library garden is open to the public for reading and outdoor enjoyment.

All summer reading events will be held in person, either in the downstairs Makerspace or in the library garden, weather permitting. Due to space limitations pre-registration is required for all events — no exceptions.
