Summer is looking a lot different this year, but that doesn't mean you can't keep reading, exploring your interests, and reaching out to the library for assistance. Check out Your Library at Home for information about videos library staff are posting on social media this summer and get full details on joining any interactive online activities, such as our Adult Book Club














In addition to our online videos and Book Club, we have three exciting activities for you to participate in this summer: Adult Summer Reading Challenge, Peterborough I Spy and Summer Holiday Trivia.

Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Adult Summer Reading Challenge Card imageOur reading challenge last summer was so popular, we decided to expand it online this year! Our new challenge allows you to print out your own randomized challenge cards, creating as many cards as you like. We'll also have printed challenge cards for you available at our Curbside Pickup starting Saturday, June 27.

Check off the challenges as you complete them to enter our weekly draws as many times as you like throughout the summer.  To enter a draw, return your completed card to our Curbside Pickup staff, or submit your completed challenge card online. We'll have draws every Saturday from July 4 to September 5 with prizes featuring gift cards and coupons for local Peterborough businesses. Love your library, love reading, love local!

Peterborough I Spy

This summer we're all staying a little closer to home, but that won't stop us from exploring our own community. We have chosen several sites in Peterborough that we want to share with you. We'll send you a new set of clues each week so that you can try to decipher the weekly mystery location, take a selfie there, and send it to us for a chance to win a prize. Sign up for our Peterborough I Spy contest on your own or play as a team with family and friend- bubble!

How to participate:
