Avon Library’s Senior Reading Buddies came to Avon Place on Saturday for an hour of reading and friendship with residents of the Detroit Road Senior Care resource.
“Through this event, seniors and young children are able to engage in reading, playing games, making crafts, and enjoying homemade cookies,” said Library Associate Kelsey DeCoste. “It has been wonderful to encourage not only literacy but relationships between both the young and the old within our community.
“This program started about a year ago at Avon Oaks Caring Community. As of September of this year, we branched out to also visit Avon Place. We will be returning to Avon Place on Saturday, January 27th.
Participating were about 8 Daisy Scouts, their leaders and their mothers in this important outreach initiative.
