SummerFest 2011 Winners and Grinners

More than 7,000 readers in our community spent part of their summer enjoying good books. And for doing so, some of them reaped really cool rewards, including free chocolate, free ice cream, gift certificates to businesses around town and Nook e-readers. Our reading incentives were a hit!

Special thanks to the Friends of the Library and The Library Foundation. These organizations ensured the community enjoyed a SummerFest full of music, theater, storytime, crafts and reading at the library. And each child received a free book for signing up for summer reading. And generous donors helped make that possible. Also, thanks to our sponsors who donated prizes.
