Children’s Programming at the Amherst Town Library


This summer’s theme: Tails and Tales


      A NOTE TO PARENTS: What a strange, crazy year we’ve had, and things are still not quite back to “normal” yet. That said, things are changing, and opening up, and our Summer Reading Program will reflect some of these changes. As always, we believe that one of our most important roles as children’s librarians is to help keep children reading all summer long. We know that actual, in-person contact is so important to the kids of our community, so we’re doing our best to make that available in the safest way possible. With that in mind, we are now offering in-person registration and prize-pickup in the Children’s Room, and several outdoor, in-person programming options. It will be so good to see you!!!

For the time being, we are asking that folks still wear a mask when visiting the library. Families may remain unmasked while seated at outdoor programs.
