The Ellicottville Memorial Library is pleased to announce the generous donation of funds from the Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth to hire a local student as a summer intern to help with the children’s Summer Reading Program. We are thrilled because this additional person will give us the ability to provide more programs and activities to the 100+ children that sign up each summer for our Summer Reading Program.
The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program is “Dream Big – READ!” This program not only helps motivate children to read but it also develops positive attitudes about reading and books. It also helps children maintain their reading skills over summer vacation and encourages regular use of the library. We are already gearing up to provide programs and events focusing on nighttime, which is filled with wishes, dreams and unique nocturnal critters.
We would like to give special thanks to the Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth for making this opportunity available to the youth of our community. Not only will this intern help the library during our busiest season, we know that this will also be a learning experience for the student as well.
Any student interested in applying for this position should stop by the Ellicottville Memorial Library or call 699-2842 for more information. The intern must be currently enrolled in college or planning on attending college this fall and preference will be given toEllicottvilleCentralSchoolgraduates.
