Local children, teens, and adults kept their minds active and expanded their knowledge through the awesome power of books this summer. We are so proud of our local readers who participated in the 2021 Online Summer Reading Program! The eight week program concluded on Saturday, July 31 and had 925 participants of all ages who read a total of 8,628 books.
The community was encouraged to continue reading throughout the summer months thanks in part to exciting prizes provided by over 40 generous local sponsors. Participants also enjoyed six online shows from lively children’s musicians, engaging puppeteers, a fascinating magician, and some amazing animal friends from the zoo. Select recordings are available through the library Events Calendar. Teen volunteers earned community service hours by writing 26 book reviews, which are published on the Book Reviews by Teens webpage.
Kudos to everyone who participated in this year’s Summer Reading Program!
