women's Club Members admire the
"Reader in the Library Garden"
September 8, 2008
We all like to read and we read to our very young children and grandchildren. As they get a little older, we introduce them to our local library so they can pick out their own books and feel comfortable among the plentiful supply of books at their fingertips. In school, they learn more about a library and how to go about finding the material they need. In the upper grades, they rely on the local library for their term papers, research papers, information on authors, and many other sources of information.
So, as we gather here today to dedicate this beautiful statue, what better example to set for a library than a child reading a book. This is where it all begins for a lifetime of enjoyment with books.
On this 8th day of September 2008, the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Women's Club dedicates this meaningful statue to the Burnt Hills Library for all to enjoy today and for many years to come.
