Dear Friends,

We wanted to let you know how your wonderful and generous support helped promote literacy this summer. Our Outreach Coordinator, Liz Zimdars just wrapped up another highly successful outreach program at Leopold Park. Here are some impressive statistics that you will be happy to hear and we are delighted to share:

  • Average number of kids each day (Mon-Thurs)-- 55
  • Average number of kids each day (Mon-Thurs--55
  • Average number of lunches served each day (Mon-Fri)-- 40
  • Average number of adults at each Community Night--75
  • Average number of kids at each Community Night--150
  • Total number of kids registered for Summer Reading Program-- 194
  • Total number of books given away-- 525
  • New library card registrations-- 46

Your generous donations to Friends allowed Liz to hire 3 fantastic Summer Outreach Assistants this year. (pictured above) That has made a tremendous difference contributing to a very successful outcome. Our mission , as Friends, is to enhance positive literacy experiences, and this program is a shining example of just that.

As always, thank you for your interest in, and support of the Friends of Fitchburg Library.

See you at the library.
