About 25 families attended the 1,000 Books Project Celebration on Saturday, June 20. The 1,000 Book Project is run by the Ossining Staff Development Center, who presented the celebration. Book bags for the project, as well as sign-up information, are available at the Ossining Public Library Children’s Room. Guest readers Police Officer Marvise Rennels, Firefighter Kim Diggs, and Mayor Hanauer read to the children and their families. A special certificate was presented to Damian Desandre for completing the program–1,000 books read! Damian is the sixth winner in the five years the program has been going on.
