Teens can make a difference program at the library

AMESBURY — This summer the teens of Amesbury will be reading for The Littlest Change, a local organization that spreads random acts of kindness in the community. They can register online at

On July 17 from 2-5 p.m., the teens will be having a food drive in front of the Amesbury Library for Our Neighbors’ Table. Drop off nonperishable items during that time. On July 23 at 1p.m., teens will be delivering muffins to the Senior Center, walking down to the center to make the delivery. On July 24 they will be giving away bracelets and stickers outside of the Amesbury Library and downtown area.

As part of the summer reading program teens should send Margie Walker their pictures of things they are doing in the community to spread kindness. Pictures can be sent to the Littlest Change as well. Check out their Facebook page at

Teens who register for the program will be entered to win a Visa Gift Card or Anime Boston ticket. Every time a teen comes to a program or sends a picture, they will have more chances to win one of these two prizes. For every book that read, they can select from these prizes to win Littlest Change T-shirts, Littlest Change water bottles, Game Stop Gift Card, Toy Soldier Gift Card or a Hodgies Gift Card.

The whole summer reading program is funded by The Friends of the Amesbury Public Library. For more information or to register, contact Walker at 978-388-8148 or
