Summer Reading Wrap-up

Eighty-two children registered into the Summer Reading Program this summer and 32 finished. We have not had numbers like this since 2014.

This was the first time we participated in the Summer Food Program, sponsored by SKCDC (Southern Kennebec Child Development Corporation).  Free lunches were served on Tuesdays for those 18 or under.  We are hoping to expand this program in 2020 to lunches every weekday for our children.

Our Stuffed animal sleepover was a huge success. We had 46 stuffed animals spend the night in the library. When children picked up their animals, they received a secret picture of some of the fun that was had by the creatures.

I feel it was a very successful summer for the Children’s Room and I look forward to next summer. Thanks for your support and keep reading.

PS – We are looking forward to adding Games to check out of the library by October.
