New this year:

If we get 1,000 teens and kids to register for the Summer Reading Club some of the librarians will dye their hair a funny color. Teens who register for the Summer Reading Club will get ballots when they attend teen Summer Reading programs. Our hair is in your hands. Will it be pink, purple, blue, orange or a different color? You decide.


 If students fill out an online book recommendation form at

they earn a raffle ticket for the weekly YA prize drawing.

 Raffle drawings are held each Monday evening.

 You do not need to be present to win.

Young Adults will earn $1.00 in “Library Loot” for each day that they read for at least 30 minutes.


There will be an auction on Friday, September 12, 2014. The students will receive their “loot” on the evening of the auction. Last year there was some fierce bidding by the students to win prizes. Everyone who participated had an awesome time! Everyone with “Library Loot” receives a prize!


Come to the library to register for this exciting program.


A special thank you to Westfield Athenaeum patrons and local businesses for their generous donations.

Spark a Reaction is sponsored by the Westfield Athenaeum, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
