PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Athenaeum launches its Read, Renew, Repeat summer reading program on Monday, June 24, 2024. 
During the next seven weeks, the library will host a range of free activities for children, teens, and adults to foster and celebrate a love of reading. Participants can win prizes for participating and attend programs to learn about the summer reading theme of conservation and recycling.
"We've planned an exciting program for youth this summer. We have events planned at the library, in local parks, and in partnership with community groups to make summer reading a great opportunity to read, learn, and discover," said Youth Services Supervisor Sara Russell-Scholl. "Each part of the program is tailored to the needs and abilities of that age range and is flexible enough that families can adapt the structure to fit their family literacy goals."
Events include a Live Animal Show, showcasing up to ten kinds of reptiles, with Uncharted Wild to kick off the summer on Monday, June 24, 2024 at 6 pm in the Library Auditorium. Sports fans will enjoy a visit by Boston Bruins Mascot Blades on Friday, August 2, 2024 at noon. Participants can win a range of prizes from an underwater camera to a year membership to the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum to books, and more.
