Thanks to everyone who participated in Youth Services’s 2012 summer reading program and weekly contests! This year’s theme was “WILD ABOUT READING!”
Please take a look at the four happy winners of our weekly contests! They each won a neat prize pack for finding a little giraffe that was hiding in a different spot in the children’s room each week in July.
269 kids signed up for our summer reading program and read over 1,100 books in total! This year, Perrot made a donation based on each book read by our summer readers to Heifer International. We were able to raise enough money to buy a goat for a needy community. So thanks, readers– each book you read helped support a great cause!
If you were one of our very special signer-uppers, you can still keep track of the books you read, even though our “official” program has ended! You can either take your reading record home with you, or leave it here in the library. We will also continue to give out prizes for books read (while supplies last, so HURRY!).
We’d also like to give a special mention our teen volunteers, who helped record books for our reading program participants. This year we had 76 volunteers, who together worked 474 volunteer hours. Thanks, guys!
And remember, we still have another month of summer left, so please KEEP READING!
