Summer Reading Clubs successful again!

Congratulations to everyone for another successful summer reading club! Over 6,500 children and teens signed up this year. Over 40% of the teens and 30% of the kids read at least 12 hours (an increase over last year). They read over 34,600 hours total.

As a reminder: we will still give out prizes until Aug.18 (or until we run out of books) for people who haven’t yet reached 12 hours. We are not signing up anyone new. Don and I will handle the drawing for the Barnes & Noble gift cards and the Kindle. We’ll send the gift cards and Kindle to the branches with the names of the winners.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for all your hard work getting kids excited about reading during the summer. It makes a huge difference in their success at school.
