There is so much to do at the library this summer: Learn Letterboxing, listen to music, be amazed by a magic show, listen to thrilling stories and hunt for bugs. Check out the Children’s Calendar for more details and other fun summer events! At the end of August, we will recognize everyone who participates by inviting them to an ice cream party.   

Teens and adults can log books and activities completed throughout the summer to earn raffle tickets for prizes from local Wellesley businesses.
