2024 Reading Challenge: June

Hey readers!

We’ve officially hit summer reading season! Whether you’re reading at the beach, on a plane, or just in your own backyard, be sure to join AFL’s summer reading program. We have programs for kids, teens, and adults with great incentives to keep you reading all summer long. And if you need a break from your book, be sure to join us for our Family Garden Shows and Queset Garden Concert Series!

Not sure what to pack in your beach bag? Let this month’s Mass Center for the Book challenge inspire you!

June’s challenge is: A book that inspired a film or television series
