The Dundee Public Library and Friends of The Library Dundee Inc are proud to take a look back at the success of our Summer Reading Program. First and foremost , a special word of thanks to the library staff and volunteers who worked in conjunction with FOL (Friends of The Library Dundee) to make each event a successful endeavor and fun for the children who attended the events over our schedule ! Special consideration also , has to be given to many of our sponsors who provided us with various forms of assistance and without whose aid none of this would have been actually possible .
