Build a Better World with Mayor Boughton and the Danbury Public Library!

This year, Mayor Boughton has asked students to join him in ‘building a better world’ by continuing to read and work hard throughout the school recess. Students can sign up for the Danbury Public Library’s “Build a Better World” 2017 Summer Reading Program by picking up or downloading a reading log from the Danbury Public Library.

Students in grades one through five who read at least one hour a week during the program’s eight weeks will become an official Mayor Boughton Super Reader! Readers in grades six through eight must read at least two hours a week. This year, Mayor Boughton has also invited grades nine through twelve to join the challenge by reading at least 2 hours a week.

When your student completes the challenge, they will receive a special invitation to join Mayor Boughton at his celebration at Danbury City Hall in August. Building a better world requires knowledge, hard work, and determination, so we ask those who have children in their lives to encourage them and keep them motivated to learn and grow throughout their years!
