You read an astonishing 826,707 minutes this summer

Summer Library Challenge Recap

Another summer is in the books! We’d just like to say thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to everyone who won a prize. We’d also like say thank you to all of our sponsors who made this year’s Summer Library Program possible.

How’d you do? Well, you read an astonishing 826,707 minutes, which is an increase of 56% over last year! Over 1,200 of you registered for the program, and 34% of you completed it. We gave out a bunch of prizes and hopefully helped your kids get back to school ready to go!
