The Friends of the Wyoming Public Library has started a community service program titled “Snuggle Up And Read”. We are hoping to promote literacy while keeping some of our younger at-risk students warm this winter. Community members can help in these ways: donate a blanket or book, donate fleece to be made into a blanket, donate money, donate time to tie blankets. We will be running this promotion until December 15th and will deliver the items to at-risk Preschool and Kindergarten children in the Midland District prior to Christmas break. We hope to brighten their Christmas season.
We feel this is a great way for community members to remember the true meaning of Christmas and would make an excellent learning tool for other students to help with.
Our mission is to promote literacy while showing kindness and compassion. We feel this program provides a comforting gift and encourages the next generation to be the best they can be. We hope you will agree and want to be part of this program.
