The 2013 Summer Reading program is coming!

Summer Reading Registration Week
Registration Week for Upton Town Library’s Summer Reading Program for kids begins on Tuesday, June 18!

Summer Reading Theater Presentation: Into the Grimm
Join us for Upton Town Library’s Summer Reading Kickoff at Nipmuc High School Courtyard on Tuesday, June 25, 6pm-7pm. The Little Red Wagon traveling theater group will captivate audiences with a presentation of “Into The Grimm,” a show that weaves together fables and fairy tales. This show is appropriate for families and children ranging from age 0-11. In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Nipmuc High School Auditorium.  Free admission, no registration required.  Bring a chair or blanket to sit on!

Red Cross Babysitter’s Training
Learn how to help kids have fun, while keeping them safe and following household rules with a Babysitter's Training provided by the American Red Cross. Just in time for summer, this program also offers hands-on skills practice and additional training in first aid. The program will be held in the Media Center at Memorial Elementary School on Friday, June 28, 9am-3:30pm and is appropriate for kids aged 11-15.  Pre-registration and a tuition fee of $85 are required.  Call the library or contact Miss Nicole to register.

Summer Book and Movie Club
Upton Town Library will be holding its first of three summer Book and Movie Club meetings for 9 to 12 year olds on Wednesday, June 26, 2pm-4pm. The club will consist of arriving to the group with the book already read and discussing it briefly, then watching the film together and finally comparing and contrasting the two. Sign-up sheets for the club are available behind the circulation desk. Please direct any questions and title suggestions to the library by calling 508-629-6272 or by emailing Miss Nicole at

Summer TinyTots “Baby” Storytime
Making connections—whether with books, music, or people—is the foundation of storytime at Upton Town Library. TinyTots (aka Baby) Storytime is ideal for acquainting babies, toddlers, and young children with the library, literature, language and music, as well as for them to bond with their parents and caregivers and meet new friends! TinyTots lasts about 20 minutes followed by open playtime and book browsing. Registration is requested, but drop-ins are always welcome. Sessions are held in eight-week intervals on Friday mornings at 10:30am.  Our Summer session will run from June 21 to August 9, 2013.

Preschool Storytime
Preschool Storytime is on Thursdays at 10:30am and 1:30pm at Upton Town Library! Several picture books are read aloud followed by a theme-related activity or craft. Our upcoming themes for June include Father’s Day, sea creatures, and digging! Note: On Thursday, June 27, there will be no Preschool Storytime at 1:30pm to accommodate another in-library event. Registration is requested, but drop-ins are always welcome for either the morning or afternoon sessions.
