Bruins mascot Blades at the Jones Tuesday, July 31!

Bruins mascot "Blades" to visit The Jones Library on Tuesday, July 31, 2012; 3-4pm. 

The Jones Library has been selected to receive a special visit from Boston Bruins mascot "Blades."  The visit will take place in the Large Meeting Room of the Library. The visit will include a story and craft, and participants will also receive a "goody bag."  This event is recommended for ages 4-9.

The Boston Bruins have been active partners and advocates for reading and literacy since 2009 when they joined the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and the Massachusetts Library System (MLS) to create “When you read, you score!”

Milan Lucic, Tyler Seguin, Brad Marchand and other players also helped libraries develop Favorite Books of the Boston Bruins, a recommended reads list, to encourage children and teens to read a variety of books over the summer. The complete list is available on mass.gov/libraries
