Thousands of readers from across the county hit the books this summer as part of our summer reading program, which ended July 28. Thanks to all who participated in our reading challenge and attended SummerFest programs at the library.
Library customers contributed reviews as they completed various reading milestones. We’ve compiled a collection of customer’s book reviews here.
In total, 4,746 kids, 644 teens, 1,009 adults and 230 infants participated and read more than 50,000 hours in eight weeks!
We’re still tallying up which schools had the most readers. Those schools with at least 25 percent of students reading will earn a prize pack of books for their libraries and a trophy.
