The program was also made possible by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.

The Fulton Public Library wishes to express its appreciation for the funding and to those who assisted with this program.

Hundreds of area children have benefited during the summer due to this grant.

The library offered 45 different programs over a six-week period for children this summer.

More than 200 children registered and kept track of their reading over that time period.

Collectively, we read 128,172 minutes.

We had visits from Pixie and Misty (therapy dogs), Bella the goat, Fidelisaurus, rode a smoothie bike, played in a game truck, built things, blew up things, and had an amazing time making new friends.

We donated 131 pounds of food to the local food pantry and painted 375 kindness rocks for the community.

The reading program was a huge success and we thank you.
