Congratulations and Thank you

Congratulations to the 176 children who participated in our summer reading program! You set a new library record by reading 3175 books!
The eight week program- Fizz, Boom, Read! concluded with an awards party featuring Pip Squeaks The Clown on Wednesday, August 20th. Children who were unable to attend the awards party may stop by the library for their certificates and awards.
The library would like to thank the following businesses for their generous prize and awards donations: McDonalds, Applebee's, Stewart's Shops, Taco Bell, Price Chopper, and Dollar General. Thank you to the Museum of Innovation and Science for the children's tickets to the Grossology exhibit. We would like to thank the many members of our community who volunteered their time for programs and who donated prizes.
