We were able to continue to work with university students from St. Rose and UAlbany, both in person and virtually, who kept us moving!
It felt amazing to bring RED Bookshelves back into the spaces of our shelf hosts, like this one at Whitney M. Young, Jr. Health Center.
The FATHER Box is full of Fun Activities To Help Enthusiastic Learners, made available to partner summer camps in 2021
Our own Nightwing helped train camp staff so they could share the fun with all the campers.
Cyborg Cipher was the most popular game in the FATHER Box. Campers used the decoder wheels of graphemes and phonemes to figure out codes!
Campers had the opportunity to use their own decoder wheels to work together and figure out the secret messages!
Mind Map is a game of memory, with sight word pairs that even our HS Summer Youth Employees had fun playing!
Summer brought 10 area Summer Youth Employees to TRB who together learned global work skills preparing 3200 books and processing 8200 books!
Summer Youth Employees had the opportunity to share books that they had enjoyed and made them more avid readers.
Through the summer TRB partnered with Albany Center Gallery and Discover Albany to bring free, themed books to their Books and Blooms events
