During the summer, Treat Memorial Library offers a Children's Summer Reading Program. Children, as well as parents, are welcome to participate. We are encouraging families to sign up to read books together during the summer.

We have something special for our adult patrons too! Our adult book club! Meetings are on the second Thursday of every month at 3:30. Books are suggested by members based on a theme they wish to explore; past themes have included the Civil War, Great Women in History, and the Jazz Age.
