Remember when summer meant reading for fun just because you wanted to? The Martha’s Vineyard Library Association likes to perpetuate that feeling every summer with the launch of its summer reading program. A pure celebration of the love of books featuring music by Boston-based singer and songwriter Vanessa Trien will kick-off this summer’s event at the Agricultural Hall in West Tisbury on Saturday, July 6, beginning at 11 a.m.

Ms. Trien has a master’s degree in education from Harvard University and has produced two award-winning children’s CDs, Carnival Day and Hot Air Balloon.

Admission to the concert and festivities is $3, add a dollar if you want to come a little early for face painting.
