This was a great summer in the Children’s Department. We had a record number of kids sign up for the Fizz Boom Read Summer Reading Program. 837 kids read a combined total of 4,735 hours! The Children’s Department was a busy place all summer long. Lots of kids and families came to the library to attend programs, do crafts, get stamps, earn stickers, play with the trains and new toys in the preschool area and just hang out. Thank you to the Friends of the Library for supporting the summer reading program. Thank you also to the Topsfield Fair, Merrimack Valley Pavillion and UNO for providing reading incentive prizes.
