This year, members of the Summer Reading Program have a chance to donate to charity. You may exchange any spin for a star which will be put into a jar on display in the library.
At the end of the summer reading program, the Friends of the Library will donate 10 cents for each stone to the Make a Wish Foundation.
Make a Wish Foundation’s mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Visit www.wish.org for more information about this organization.
