2nd annual Book it 5k race to support the dedham public library

The 2nd annual Book It 5K race was held on Saturday, August 19th, 2017, at 10 a.m. at the Main Library, co-hosted by the Dedham Library Innovation Team to support the library. Once again, the lead sponsor for the event was Dedham Savings. The race was a fun family-friendly activity for the entire community to raise awareness for the town library system and the many resources it provides, and was the centerpiece of a busy community day at the library.  In addition to the 5K run that morning, the main library was open for patrons and other community members to visit, borrow from its collections, and view recent renovations to the facility.  In addition, Creature Teachers presented a live animal education program for all ages outside on the library lawn. 


Thank you to all of our supporters for DEDHAM READS 2017.
