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

Children aged 0-11 read books, do activities, and collect Brag Tags!

  • Pick up a Reading Log at the Monson Library to receive your first Brag Tag.
  • Track your reading by coloring in 1 paw print for every 15 minutes you read. You will earn a Brag Tag for every 2 hours you read.
  • Bring your filled out Reading Log into the library to collect earned Brag Tags!
  • You will also earn Brag Tags for attending library programs, so be sure to check out our Events Calendar to see what we have going on this summer!

You can also use Beanstack to keep track of your time spent reading alone or with parents, siblings or your friends. Audio books and E-books count too! You can also write reviews of the books that you’ve been enjoying. And check out all the fun adctivites we’ve included this year. Don’t forget that you can register as a family and read together!

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


Reading Log must be turned in by August 6th!

The First 100 readers to complete 10 hours of reading will receive a
“Monson Free Library Super Reader” sign for their lawn!

All readers will receive a certificate, and everyone is invited to our Grand Finale Party with Jay Makita at River Hollow Family Golf Center on Friday June 6th at 11 a.m.


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