Fall in Love with Reading Again 

The Berlin-Peck Memorial Library is starting a new, year-long initiative to help adults fall in love with reading.

January 9, 2023

Did you love to read as a child but now find that you haven’t picked up a book in years?

Do you wish you could become a reader but just don’t know where to start?

We can help! Reading offers many benefits from teaching empathy to reducing stress, to improving concentration and focus and much more.  Will 2023 be the year when you make reading a priority to help improve your wellness and mental health?

The Berlin-Peck Memorial Library is starting a new, year-long initiative to help adults fall in love with reading. Whether it’s a light romance novel, a scary horror story or a factual history book, our librarians can help you find the perfect book to get you started.

Here is what we have in store for you this year. We hope we can help kickstart your reading life this year!
