Dartmouth libraries to offer summer programming

Jun 20, 2022

The Dartmouth libraries are gearing up for summer as they prepare to offer a full slate of programming for the first time since the pandemic began more than two years ago.

Programming will include adult and teen summer reading and adult movie programs, which will be offered for the first time at the North Branch Library in addition to the Southworth Library.

To take part in the reading program for teens or adults, readers should register at the library where they will also be able to pick up reading cards to track their reading.

Using the cards, readers will fill in an X for every 60 pages they read or 60 minutes they listen.

When all the X’s are filled, readers can drop off their cards in the collection box at the library.

Winners will be chosen every week by drawing cards from the box.

Reading can be counted in most formats, including books, e-books, newspapers, magazines, etc.

The libraries will also be hosting movie nights for adults at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays at Southworth and on Thursdays at North Branch.

The movie schedule is as follows: June 27 and 30, King Richard (PG-13); July 11 and 14, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (PG); July 18 and 21, The Big Sick (R); July 25 and 28, American Underdog (PG); Aug. 1 and 4, Nomadland (R); Aug. 8 and 11, Respect (PG-13).
