Albany Public Library patron Alejandro Mendoza was selected as one of the Oregon College Savings Plan drawing winners. Alejandro received his drawing entry as a prize in Albany’s Summer Reading Program and was awarded a $1000 college savings plan account; he also won $500 for the Albany Public Library. Alejandro and his family, along with Children’s Librarian Barbara Currier, attended the awards ceremony on Wednesday October 1, 2013. Congratulations, Alejandro!
A child from Albany has won each of the four years the contest has taken place; look for your chance to win at next year’s Summer Reading Program.
