To The Daily Sun,
Congratulations to all the youngsters who joined this year's summer reading program at the Belmont Public Library. We had 143 kids sign up. Also, all the grown-ups who participated deserve a big hand for the reading aloud they did, for all the tickets they filled out, and for all they do to support the library and their children's reading in the summer and throughout the year.
We couldn't do such an ambitious program without the strong support and collaboration with the local schools, their staff and administration. It is an honor and joy to work with such wonderful educators.
Those summer reading lists were a great incentive for folks to come to the library.
Brookside Pizza in Belmont was beyond good to us and donated the pizza for our closing party.It is also my great privilege and pleasure to say huge thank yous to Belmont Police, Fire, Public Works, and Rec Departments. The first three provided the impressive vehicles at the July Belmont Farmers Market, and the Recreation Department allowed us to "borrow" their summer camp kids for a demonstration by the N.H. Children's Museum.
Warmest thanks to everyone who helped throughout our busy six weeks. We could not do these large events without the generous support of our patrons and sponsors. We especially want to acknowledge those businesses which donated prizes for our weekly raffle including Canobie Lake Park, Gunstock Resort, Gilford Cinema 8, Pirates' Cove, Subway, and Funspot. The N.H. Motor Speedway offered NASCAR tickets as a "bonus" incentive to those who signed up in the first week.
An especially big note of thanks to Katherine, Paige, and Sarah. The library could not have functioned without you this summer.
Eileen Gilbert, Director
Belmont Public Library
