The meeting room at the Boardman library was filled with queens, kings and knights during the facility’s “Medieval Play” Sept. 13. The royal affair honored children who were top readers during the summer reading program.

“Today is to honor children from each grade level from preschool to sixth grade. We like the medieval theme because it’s fun and the kids like to dress up. It’s rewarding because a lot of these faces I know because I’ve seen them throughout the summer. A lot of them have come to story time and other programs,” said Children’s Librarian Karen Saunders.

The event included fun-filled games for children. Proud parents were excited to see their childrens’ love of reading being recognized during the ceremony. Maritsa Fink was happy that her daughter, Annie, has always loved to read on her own.

“She’s always read a lot. I went upstairs and she had 25 small candles under her bed so she could read at night. I am extremely proud of her because there’s a lot of kids that don’t like to read and I feel like I’ve instilled in her the importance of reading,” Maritsa said.

Annie, who is a second-grade student at Market Street Elementary School, sees reading as not only a way to explore her imagination, but as another tool for learning.

“It’s another way to learn and it’s fun to know what happens in the stories,” said Annie.
