Chazy kindergartners introduced to local library

"We do try to do that so at least they have that exposure one time and maybe spark the interest in the future," Rovers explained.

"It's just to make it a little more special and be a place where they bring their parents to," said Sabourin.

Sabourin also saw the importance for the children to visit the library, because it is a part of the community.

"I was reading ... about field trips," she explained. "Schools cutting field trips and taking advantage of what's in the community. That's important because in first or second grade, they discuss the community and what's there and they should be learning the resources that are right there."

Rovers said when the students returned to the school, they were very excited about where they had been, and especially about the bags they were able to take home with them.

"[Dominy and Sabourin] had put together a little bag and in the bag they had a bookmark listing all the times of the upcoming summer events. They were very excited to have that to take home."
