An exciting program that FMPL has taken on!

FMPL is funding the REACH OUT AND READ program in Seymour, WI. Hurray!  Children from birth to 3 are given books at wellness visits at these three clinics in Seymour:

Aurora, Bellin and Pervea.

FMPL cares about fostering readers and the habit of reading within young families. Stickers giving credit to FMPL will be put in each book given away.

We are thankful to Abbey Unruh who works at the Appleton Public Library and administers the program regionally.

To find out more about this wonderfully important and successful program please go to : REACH OUT AND READ.
