The City of White Plains My Brother's Keeper Initiative to hold 2nd Annual Readers Achievers Program

The City of White Plains My Brother’s Keeper Initiative will sponsor its second Annual Summer Readers Achievers Program beginning Monday, July 2nd thru Friday, August 10, 2018.  Working in concert with the White Plains Library and area camp programs, the Readers Achievers Program is designed to increase the number of children and teens participating in summer reading programs.  More than 300 children and youth participated in last year’s Readers Achievers Program. Frank Williams, Jr., Youth Bureau Director and Co-chairman of the White Plains My Brother’s Keeper said that he is “looking forward to this year’s program. Children who read during the summer see improved language skills and are better prepared for the rigors of school when school starts in September.” 

 Books are available at the White Plains Library.  At the end of the summer, youth will receive a Certificate of Participation
