BOSTON — Laura McLeod, the director of the Boston Library, said the summer fun club programs, held at the Boston Free Library, are in the last two weeks of production. The library hosted its last reading club on Aug. 2 and the final session was scheduled for Aug. 9.
There are five libraries involved in the summer club, includingTonawanda, Eggertsville/Snyder, Audubon, Elma and Boston. These five libraries all differ in their meeting times, awarded prizes and age levels.
Boston’s summer fun club ran each Friday, from July 12 – Aug. 9. The summer fun club is a separate program from the battle of the books, which has since been completed.
“Our program is open to one to fourth graders, and participants are from all over Erie County, not just in Boston,” McLeod explained. “In addition to reading, the children receive snacks, prizes and participate with numerous crafts and games. The children can select their own choice of reading materials, open to any genre, and we always try to have this event, every summer. When the children go back to school, in the fall, the teachers can get a unique perspective on who has advanced their reading levels.”
