Help Support the Summer Reading Program
Dear Friends,
Get ready to read! The Fiske Public Library is gearing up for our 2024 Statewide Summer Reading Program: Read, Renew, Repeat! We are preparing to empower children and young adults this summer with books. We hope we can count on you for support. This year’s program begins on June 17 and will offer children of all ages an opportunity to earn prizes for reading during the summer. Children from birth through high school are invited to participate. Last year’s program, Find Your Voice, had nearly 500 children register. By the end of the summer, more than 250 children met their reading goals and were eligible for prizes. We hope to have even more kids coming to read this summer.
We are asking library patrons, local businesses, banks, and civic groups for donations for reading incentive prizes to encourage Wrentham families to read together.  Remember that donations go a long way; ideally, we’d like any individual prizes donated within the $10 range. In fact, donations of any kind are greatly appreciated. The prizes help promote reading during the time that kids are out of school and may not customarily read on their own. Your generosity will help provide the resources necessary to make this program a success. In return for any donation, the name of your business or organization will be posted in the library and listed on any promotional materials, including the library newsletter and social media. We thank you in advance for your generosity and support. If you have any questions about the program or would like to contribute to this worthy cause, please call our children’s librarian Sara DelPriore at 508-384-5440 ext.5 Thank you in advance for your support.
Sincerely,    
Your Friends at Fiske Public Library
