Upcoming Programs for Fall 2021

Whelden Library is beginning our Shared Warmth reading incentive program next Monday! Shared Warmth is a program that has been used in other libraries to encourage parents/caregivers and children to read TOGETHER! Sign up ANYTIME after Nov. 8. To sign up, all you need to do is fill out a tiny card with your name at Whelden. You then receive a free book and a chart for logging your reading time! If you need materials sent to you via email or mail, call us: 508-362-2262! The challenge goal is to read 5 days per week together for 2 months! If you are able to accomplish this challenge, you will receive a free mug to fill with more warmth while you continue to enjoy each other’s company during your new cozy reading habit!


2-7 year olds: 15 minutes of reading per day

8 and up: 30 minutes of reading per day
