Thank You to our Summer Reading Program Donors!

A big thank you to all of our Summer Reading Program Donors!  You helped us give out nearly 6,700 books this summer to kids of all ages.  Along with the books, there were fabulous prizes for kids aged 0 – 18, and drawings with great prizes for adults as well.  Thank you for keeping up the reading skills of our community’s children during the summer.  All of the programs are fun and provide a good opportunity for family time.
