Welcome to Tails and Tales: Adult Summer Reading 2021 at the Monson Free Library!

Read books, do activities, win prizes!  

Adults aged 19 and up use our online reading log through Beanstack to keep track of your time spent reading. Remember, all reading counts–read a book, magazine, comic book/ graphic novel, or e-book; listen to an audio book; read to your pets; read aloud with your children/family. 

You can also write reviews of the books that you’ve been enjoying. And check out all the fun activities we’ve included this year.

This summer, you can earn online badges for reading, writing reviews and completing activities!

There’s so much going on this summer. Check out our events calendar!


Adults participating in Summer Reading can also play Summer Reading Bingo!

This year we have two different bingo games, one just for reading and one to spotlight our e-resources. You can choose to do one or both. Use the bingo cards to keep track of the challenges you finish. The more bingo spots you fill, the more chances to win prizes you get!

Stop by the library to pick up a copy of the bingo cards, or print your own with the link below.

Bingo cards must be turned in by August 13th @ 2 p.m.

Use the Book Lists below to help find books that fit the Bingo challenges!

Some books on these lists overlap and can count toward multiple Bingo squares!
