Summer Reading is Over!

So sad, but we had some incredible accomplishments by our summer readers:

53 kids (ages 3 – 14) completed the program reading at least 5 books or 100 minutes
1939 books read
50 programs were run during the 6 weeks of summer reading
21 adults wrote 82 book reviews for our adult program
37 kids attended our raffle give-away
approximately 847 water beads were crushed into pulp at the final party

Because of the reading accomplishments, our readers have UNLOCKED a series of GROUP PRIZES!

Voting for the Kids’ Choice Movie is now open.
