Since the summer of 2009, the Boston Bruins have been partnering with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and the Massachusetts Library System (MLS) to present When You Read, You Score! The summer reading program encourages children and teens to read over the summer months so they may avoid the "summer slide" and maintain skills they've learned over the academic year.

To help inspire children and teens to keep reading over the summer, Bruins players, including Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Dougie Hamilton have helped libraries develop Favorite Books of the Boston Bruins - a new recommended reads list that also includes librarian picks for the best hockey books. To see the recommend reads list, please click here.

2014 Summer Reading Program

Over the course of the summer, Blades and Bruins Ice Girls visit libraries around Massachusetts to promote the Massachusetts Summer Reading program. During the visits, they assist with reading the story "This Bear's Tale: How Blades Became a Bruin", participate in craft activities such as coloring in hockey masks and Bruins coloring pages, and have the chance to win trivia prizes.

This summer, the Bruins will be making at the following libraries:
