2016 Youth Summer Reading Program

Children Text (1)

     THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to all those who        participated in this year’s Summer Reading Program!

Here are a few highlights:

127 kids registered this year.  That is up from last year’s 111.  Hopefully next year, even more!

Altogether, the participants read for over 600 hours!

Through their reading, the kids helped donate 10 balls to Special Olympics Massachusetts.  We will be donating 4 basketballs and 6 soccer balls. Thank you!
