Summer Reading Wrap-Up: Goshen Public Library Fizzed, Boomed, and Read this Summer

The Goshen Public Library had a great time with this year’s Summer Reading Program. They had lots of programs and reading going on. Here is a summary directly from the Goshen Public Library desk, along with a few photos:

“Well everyone….we fizzed, we boomed and boy did we read! We had 516 friends as young as 1 year old all the way to those going into sixth grade participate in five weeks of programming and fun. In total, we read close to a half a million pages, circulated 13,262 element tickets and had over 65 programs over five weeks! This summer has been fabulous and the Just for Kids staff couldn’t be prouder of our readers, our teen volunteers and our parents! We appreciate all of our participants tolerating our “sardine can” situation downstairs in the Just for Kids Area. Our standing room only moments are a testament to our success, but illustrate our drawbacks in accommodating everyone who knows the library is such a great place! We would like to extend our thanks to the Goshen Central School District which allows us to use some of their building space for programs, to Brian Crandall and Mad Science of the Mid-Hudson for joining our science fair, to Elizabeth Gerasolo and What’s the Scoop for providing our end of year ice cream and to all of our dedicated teen volunteers who work daily to run our “bank” and “store”.”
