Melissa Fried, the new Children's Services Coordinator at Riverhead, along with her staff, has whipped up a treat for young readers - the "Reading is Sweet" winter reading club! The children's room was transformed into a real-life Candyland to inspire children to sink their teeth into some tasty reads. It worked -- they had 100 kids sign up for the club in 3 days! The theme was inspired by the reference department's "Food for Thought" theme, and the delicious decorations were concocted by library clerk Margie Santiago. Check it out below!
The club runs from January 9 to February 24.
