Did you read 1,000 books? It’s time to celebrate

The first 1,000 Books Celebration is set for June 7 at Plumb Memorial Library.

Families and library staff will celebrate that Saturday at 11 a.m. for those who have read and recorded 1,000 books since the library’s family literacy program began in late September 2013.

Along the way the staff collected books, puzzles, play-dough, toys and other treats for each 100 books they logged.

Recognizing the children

Every family enrolled in the 1000 Books program is invited to recognize the children who have met the goal. Families interested in beginning the program are welcome as well.

The children will have time to play in the make-believe kitchen and store, create butterfly-based crafts, share a story and more in the hour of fun.

Co-sponsored by the Shelton School Readiness Council, additional support for the program comes from the Friends of the Shelton Libraries.

Grants and sponsors

Grants from the Valley Community Foundation and the Valley United Way as well as operating funds from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund were used to provide this program.

Plumb Memorial Library is at 65 Wooster St. in Shelton. For questions and more information call 203-924-9461.
