Library Resources and Services During Closure

We may be closed, but we are working to remotely assist you. In addition to our digital collection, we are planning virtual programs, have curated activity lists, and will be adding to this one-stop page of remote resources.

beverly keeps readingWelcome to #BeverlyKeepsReading!

The Beverly Public Library, in conjunction with Beverly Public Schools’ librarians, is pleased to announce the Beverly Keeps Reading program. This city-wide challenge is designed to keep everyone in Beverly reading during this time of social distancing. We’re in this together and we want Beverly to read 5,000 books this spring.

Patrons of all ages can participate by tracking their reading using the Beanstack app. Each week two participants will have a chance to win gift certificates to local businesses impacted by this crisis provided by the Friends of the Beverly Public Library.

Register by Thursday, April 16 for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Super Sub, generously provided by The Friends of the Beverly Public Library and Super Sub.

Ready to read? Join on Beanstack or download the free beanstack app.

Prefer not to track your reading with the app? You can leave a message at 978-921-6062, ext. 2130. Let us know your name, phone number, and how many books you read.
