Summer reading program a success
To The Editor:
The Summer Reading Program at the Fairview Public Library was a great success. Fairview had a 50 percent increase in the number of participants in the program and in the number of books children and teens read over the summer. Pre-school and elementary school children read an average of 12 hours during the 10-week program and the teens read an average nine books over the summer.
Fairview also offered 23 programs over the summer ranging from exploring dinosaurs and gnomes to creating Steampunk art. Most of these programs were led by library clerk Keri Dudek with Story Laurie and Lynda Carroll from the Public Archaeology Facility at Binghamton University providing special programming to the community.
Fairview would like to extend thanks the following businesses for supporting Fairview’s successful Summer Reading Program: Cheese Barrel, Four County Library System, Hess Express of Margaretville, NBT Bank, Sluiter Agency, Inc., Timberland Properties – Coldwell Banker, and Wadler Brothers.
