Our August 23rd program was just grand and attributable to the hard work and dedication Kathy Lescoe's Childrens services team


The importance of reading and literacy in general is principal to our mission's focus. The importance of children reading and knowing the joy reading engenders is key to our societies future. In that regard, the Friends of the Library do the community a tremendous service by funding many of the special programs the Libraries develop over the year. This summer was no exception in that commitment. Thank you, Friends of Farmington Library. I would suggest you join the Friends, they are a great group of individuals.

Our August 23rd end of the summer splash reading program was just grand and attributable to the hard work and dedication of our entire Children's Services team led by Kathy Lescoe, Head of Branch and Children's Services.
