Summer reading is over and I want to say a big thank you to Ms. Amanda and Ms. Delonda for making it our most successful summer reading program ever. We had 309 and children register, 452 kids attended, with 286 parents and guardians.
Congratulations to Shane Kendall, Gavin Scott, Maelyn Witt, Timothy Spearman and Kaylea Biggs. These kids won the drawings for fit bits. Every child who attended the last program was allowed to take home a free book and the 128 kids who turned in reading logs won other prizes. Thanks to the Friends of the Library, we had many prize giveaways. Thanks to all the parents and guardians who took time from their busy schedule to bring children to the library this summer.
