Congratulations, New Readers!

In case we haven’t mentioned it lately, the Library’s mission statement is what we like to call the Library IDEA: “To Inspire, Delight, Educate All”. This is the road map that we refer to as we make many of our decisions about services, collections, events and other library activities.

Today we host our annual I Can Read Party celebrating the new reading skills of First Graders. This is a very special time that we set aside each year to acknowledge that important milestone in a child’s life when he or she has gained the tools for literacy and lifelong learning. And so, this event would easily fall under that part of our mission to “Inspire” and “Educate”.  But equally important, the I Can Read event is a party – a festive occasion complete with balloons, entertainment, a cake, party favors, and lots of laughter. The idea is to make a happy memory marking a wonderful achievement and to celebrate the joy of reading. All this adds up to another part of our mission: to delight! 
Congratulations, First Graders, and welcome to the community of readers!
