BJCF Awards Grant to the Public Library Summer Reading Program

The Boulder Junction Community Foundation awarded the Boulder Junction Public Library a $450 grant to purchase reading incentive prizes for the Children’s Summer Reading Program grand prize raffle drawing. Boulder Junction Public Library’s “Libraries Rock” summer reading program laid the groundwork for children to become lifelong readers and learners. Each week 30-40 children participated.

Special program activities included a presentation about animal habitats with Licia Johnson, a naturalist from the North Lakeland Discovery Center; a visit from Colossal Fossils natural history program, and many other fun and educational games, activities and crafts. The program wrapped up with a Dance Party by Barb Boston, prize awards and ice cream. The Boulder Junction Community Foundation is a proud supporter of this annual program.
