Budding Readers

The Budding Readers program continues to serve area families by delivering new books to young children within the Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District.

The program provides books to children up to 36 months old, readings tips for infants and young children, a parent guide, and age-appropriate reading materials to siblings ages seven and younger.

The Midlakes program was created in 2011 by Anne Wyjad and Linda Bolan, who continue to contribute. In 2017, Midlakes Intermediate School Principal Janice Driscoll took over leadership of the local program.

Budding Readers provides a new book for each child in the school district entering UPK, kindergarten, and Head Start. To participate in the program, or for more information, call (315) 521-1511 or email
