Help Support the Summer Reading Program
We are writing this letter to ask your support for our summer reading program at the Fiske Public Library. This summer Wrentham children and teens (ages 0-18) and their families are invited to participate in the 2022 Statewide Summer Library Program: Read Beyond the Beaten Path, sponsored by the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. We are asking library patrons, local businesses, banks, and civic groups to donate items (gift certificates, raffle items, school supplies, coupons etc) to encourage Wrentham families to read together. We will use these as reading incentive prizes. We hope this will not only be good advertising for local merchants but also FUN for Wrentham readers. We will be happy to post names of supporters at the library, on social media, our website and in our monthly newsletter.
YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Thank you in advance.
Sara DelPriore, Children's Librarian
