Manlius Library (summer 2010)
Make a Splash -- Read!
Public libraries across the State encourage reading through the New York Statewide Summer Reading Program. The 2010 summer reading themes were “Make A Splash -- Read!” and “Make Waves @ Your Library”. The New York State Library participates in the national Collaborative Summer Library Program with 47 other states. The theme, high-quality artwork, and educational activities attract kids to the summer reading program at their local libraries. In support of this reading program, the students of Enders Road Elementary School each drew sketches of their ideas that somehow illustrated the reading program themes. These ideas were then combined and incorporated into the final design of the 24 foot mural that was created. All the students in the school had an opportunity to create a personal sketch and to help paint the mural. The mural was hung in the Children’s Section of the Manlius Library for the duration of the summer and into the fall.
