Did you know that hockey players are readers? Our Boston Bruins have been teaming up with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Massachusetts Library System since 2009 for the annual Summer Library Program. This year, the Attleboro Public Library was chosen as one of the libraries to host a Bruins themed celebration of reading.
On July 18th, the Boston Bruins mascot, Blades, visited the Attleboro Public Library. He and other library visitors were treated to stories, games and crafts. The Bruins trivia wheel was a big hit, as were Bruins (temporary!) tattoos, hockey mask crafts, and fun Bruins posters.
The Attleboro Library was thrilled to host this fun-filled afternoon, and to meet the many hockey fans that came. This event was part of the statewide summer reading program, made possible through funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and through support from the Boston Bruins.
