Summer Reading Closing Party

SRP 2011 Closing Party, Friday, August 12th Bonetti Children’s Room, Main Library

Starting with a zero budget, and ending with nearly $7,000 which allowed for incentives, t-shirts, supplies, refreshments, craft materials, a day at Camp Liberty for 137 children, and enough money left over to send to ALL nine branches and the Main Library for end-of-Summer Reading Program celebrations, was an object lesson in determination, dedication and resilience for library staff and the 558 children who registered to participate in the 2011 Summer Reading Program of the Jersey City Free Public Library.

Naturally, we were all heartbroken with the news that the severely reduced library budget didn’t cover any program expenses; but we all got to work, contacting the many businesses, non-profits, and individuals that have helped in the past, and received such support! The SRP Committee was determined to have a Summer Reading Program much like the one we’ve presented for the past 30 years, and not having a SRP was not an option!
