On Thursday, March 13, 2014, Franklin Elementary invited their students and families to an evening of food, fun and learning at The Clinton Children's Library and Learning Center. The event included a scavenger hunt where participants made nutritional snacks, learned important test-taking tips, were read children's books by Franklin staff members, viewed videos of Franklin students’ past performances in the theatre and enjoyed tours of the greenhouse and gardens. Franklin students and their families were also treated to door prizes and a hot dog dinner to round out the evening. Franklin student artwork was also displayed and will be hanging in the foyer of the library for several weeks for library patrons to enjoy. Many families took advantage of the opportunity to sign-up for library cards and picked up calendars to participate in other activities the library offers. Increasing literacy and math proficiency is a top priority at Franklin and the library is an excellent resource for families to use to assist in reaching that goal.
