“Boston Public Library’s young readers submitted hundreds of thoughtful essays and capped off a summer of learning with one of Boston’s most beloved summertime traditions. I am grateful to our sponsors for their generous support of this unique summer reading program that further develops reading and literacy skills during out of school time,” said David Leonard, President of the Boston Public Library.
In addition to the Read Your Way to Fenway summer essay contest, youth and adults participated in summer reading programs throughout the Boston Public Library system from June through August, engaging in a variety of enriching skill-building programs.
Read Your Way to Fenway is generously sponsored by John Hancock, the Red Sox Foundation, and the Boston Public Library.
