5/31/13 – The New York State Library and 4-H are working together to connect all public libraries with the opportunities offered by partnering with 4-H this summer. See information at http://www.summerreadingnys.org/librarians-educators/le-resources/#4h
4-H has new updates for those of you who have made partnership connections AND for those of you who haven’t. . . .
For those who have partnered – Send a copy of your program flyer to NYS 4-H Project Coordinator Kelly Ann Radzik (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you will be entered into a drawing for a 4-H prize package!
