One should note, annually drowning deaths among juveniles, are one of the most alarming statistics correlated by the CDC.

In attendance for this presentation were children from two local daycare centers within the Town of Dundee, Little Land Early Learning Center , Stay & Play along with several children accompanied either by a parent or guardian.


With the audience seated , the program began with Julie informing the children of the dangers being unaccompanied in close proximity of water. With so many juveniles not being able to swim , deaths from drowning have reached an alarming level as seen from the statistics provided by the CDC (Center For Disease Control)

After the presentation the children were then allowed to be part of the usual customary activities organized by Mary-Ann Podbielski , the Library’s story-time teller and volunteer with the Dundee Library. It has been through Mary-Ann’s nonstop efforts and diligent work the Library and Friends of The Library have been able to organize and conduct these planned activities as part of our Summer Reading Program.

Also on site were the Books Bridge Bookmobile a regular attendee, providing the children with free reading material (book), as well as the Summer Florida Food Program, with their providing the children with a free nutritional meal .
