The 2022 Summer Reading Program has ended! A HUGE thank you to everyone that participated!


Discover new adventures and join our 2022 Summer Reading Program, “Read Beyond the Beaten Path.” To complete the reading program, we are asking you to register and read for 12 hours from June 16 to August 10. Keep track of your reading using a reading log with stickers. Being read to counts as reading too! The reading log and stickers are available at the library.

Children ages 4 and under who reach the goal of 12 hours will win a free book. Children ages 5 and up will win the Topsfield Fair Prize Packet: one admission ticket, one hot dog and drink voucher, and two ride tickets.

To be eligible for the Topsfield prize package you need to pass in the reading log to the Children’s Room or email a picture of your completed reading log to Margie McClory by Wednesday, August 10. Everyone who brings their log back will also win a woodland animal keychain and be entered in a raffle to win some cool prizes!


Register for the teen Summer Reading Program through July 27 for opportunities to win great prizes including free books, tickets to the Topsfield Fair, and raffle tickets for the grand prizes–$50 gift cards! Teens win prizes by completing squares on our “Read Beyond the Beaten Path” bingo cards. Finished your bingo card? Here is a second one to complete for more raffle tickets and more prizes. The more you read and the more you do, the more you win! Sign up and get your game card through Wednesday, July 27 at the library. Game cards are due by 9 PM on Wednesday, August 10. Questions? Contact Katie Nelson.


Summer reading isn’t just for kids! Join the fun by rating the books you read this summer to win prizes. Simply fill out our Summer Reading Book Rating form and submit it by Wednesday, August 10. For each book rated, you earn entry into a raffle for one of three Book Lovers gift baskets. Questions? Contact Lisa Ryan. For readers 18+.

“Read Beyond the Beaten Path” is sponsored by the Beverly Public Library, the Friends of the Beverly Public Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and the Topsfield Fair.
