---- — NORTH ANDOVER — They’re not quite ready to announce the details, but staffers at Stevens Memorial Library are gearing up to offer an ambitious summer reading program for North Andoverites of all ages.
Kathleen Keenan, assistant director of the library, told the trustees yesterday afternoon everything should be in place by early May. Typically, the summer reading program includes movies, visits by authors and fun activities.
Director Mary Rose Quinn said the library will host a number of “special visitors” in July and August.
Much of the funding for the summer reading program will be provided by the book sale that will take place the first weekend in May at the library. The hours are May 3, 4 to 7 p.m.; May 4, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and May 5, noon to 3 p.m.
The sale is being organized by the Friends of the Stevens Memorial Library. Books will range in price from 25 cents to $2.
A particularly popular feature of the sale will occur Sunday, May 5, when customers will be able to purchase a bag filled with books for $5.
The Friends of the Stevens Memorial Library need volunteers to make the sale a success. Anyone interested in helping at the sale is asked to email FriendsofStevensMemLib@gmail.org.
