Guernsey Library sponsors summer reading activities for children

NORWICH – Once children are out of school for the summer, educating them throughout their time off is an important goal to keep children learning all year long.



The New York State Board of Regents is encouraging all children to participate in “Get a Clue,” a free New York State Summer Reading Program. Locally, Guernsey Memorial Library is participating and so far Librarian Melanie Battoe says the program and children involved seem to be off to a great start.
