Southborough – Elmo made a visit to the Southborough Library earlier this month as part of The U.Fund Start U. Reading Series, organized by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA). The program is one of MEFA's statewide early college planning initiatives designed to introduce young students to the joy of reading and literacy through interdisciplinary activities. Start U Reading visits over 25 communities each year and is funded by MEFA and Fidelity Investments. Participants had an opportunity to meet the character, have their photo taken, and receive a goody bag filled with materials and a brand new book.
