Sayville Reads – One Friendly Town

The children’s and teen’s areas at Sayville Library are featured in the March/April 2011 edition of American Libraries. Be sure to take a look!

For the first time this year, the Sayville Library is launching a program called “Sayville Reads: One Friendly Town.” The library has collaborated with Sayville schools and selected a theme – dogs – and four correlating books for different age groups: adults, high school students, 3rd through 8th graders, and Pre-K through second graders. Children are participating in dog-themed craft programs, storytimes, and book discussions of Bad Dog, Marley and Marley: A Dog Like No Other, both by John Grogan. Activities for teens include a program in which they bake dog biscuits that will be donated to a local animal shelter.

For more information on this unique collaboration, check out their website or contact the Sayville Library.
