More than 190 children and 30 teens and adults participated in the Desmond-Fish Library’s summer reading program, which concluded on Aug. 21 with an ice cream party at the Garrison library.
During the weekly program children earned dimes for acts of kindness, which they could donate to the Putnam Highlands Audubon Society or the Philipstown Food Pantry. Each nonprofit sent a representative to the party to accept the donations and tell the children what the dimes would be used for.
