SUMMER READING CLUB!!
Dear Friends –
We are writing this letter to ask your support for our summer reading program at the Fiske Public Library. This summer Wrentham Children & Teens (Ages 0-18) are invited to participate in the 2018 Statewide Summer Reading Program : LIBRARIES ROCK! 
We are asking library patrons, local businesses, banks, civic groups, etc. to donate items (gift certificates, raffle items, school supplies, coupons for free ice cream cones or slices of pizza, etc.) to encourage Wrentham families to read together. We will use these as reading incentive prizes.
We hope this will not only be good advertising for local merchants but also FUN for Wrentham readers. We will be happy to post names of supporters at the library, on our website and in our monthly newsletter.
YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
Thank you in advance.
Sincerely, Elizabeth Nadow, Children's Librarian
