Globe Library summer reading; Free weekday lunches

The Globe Public Library is holding its “A Universe of Stories,” a summer reading program during June and July for all ages — toddler to teen.

Signup forms are available at the library, located at 339 S. Broad St., in Globe, and are also easy to find and print online from

Daily reading groups and free weekday lunches are the Globe Library’s ambitious effort for local kids, with separate groups assuring a variety of age-appropriate books.

Babies and toddlers up to age two in the first group, with preschoolers age 3-5 in another.  There are also two separate groups for elementary schoolers (ages 6-7 or ages 8-9).

Books beloved by tweens were selected for ages 10-13 with more mature titles chosen for ages 14-17.

Programs are all free but kids must be pre-registered to attend. Preschoolers must be accompanied by an adult to attend their sessions; ages 6-17 can attend without a chaperone but must be picked up promptly after their particular reading sessions.

Library staff won’t supervise the kids after that day’s reading group has ended.

Summer reading sessions are weekdays now through Thursday, July 11.

There’s a summer reading prize assembly Saturday, July 13 and scholastic book fair Monday through Saturday, July 15-20.

Ask library staff about Summer Lunch Buddies — a free daily lunch program for ages 18 and under on weekdays, offered Monday through Friday until Friday, July 26.
