Summer Reading Program Recap
While we did not quite reach the community reading charity goal set for the youth Summer Reading Program, we are so proud of our readers. The Birth-Age 5 participants read 7,761 books, while our Grades K-8 participants read 833,413 minutes! In recognition of this outstanding effort, a donation of $500 will be made to the Northfield Township Food Pantry in honor of the Summer Reading Program participants.
