Task force book fair to benefit families


FARMINGTON – The Franklin County Children’s Task Force will host a Scholastic Book Fair at the Strawberry Festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 28.

The proceeds will benefit the children and families in Franklin County who participate in the Growing Healthy Families home visiting program, a partnership between the Franklin County Children’s Task Force and Franklin Memorial Hospital.

The books will be provided to families with young children to encourage early literacy and to foster attachment between parent and child while they share in the joy of reading.

They will also be available to parents to borrow from the Children’s Task Force Lending Library, which can be accessed by any member of the community by just signing the books out. Anyone wishing additional information may contact the task force at 778-6960.
