Watch Read Listen - Experience a story with the Waltham Public Library

WATCH READ LISTEN is a new, annual community-wide initiative to encourage Waltham to experience a story together. Our goal is for the whole city to engage in conversation and programming designed to delve deeper into a story, start a dialogue, uncover new perspectives, and mostly, bring people together in an entertaining and enriching way. This year our story is The Jungle Book.

So, how can you participate?

  • Sign up: Come to the library and sign your name on a leaf. We built a tree trunk and branches around the story hour room, so you see it as you enter the library. The tree will bloom all summer long with more and more leaves as people sign up.

  • Experience the story: You choose the format! Watch, read or listen to the story.

  • Engage with your community: Come to the library all summer long for fun events related to the Jungle Book.
  • That’s it! Sound easy? Good – that’s the whole point.
