On your mark, get set, READ! - 2016

We kicked off our 2016 summer reading program on June 4th by racing boats we made using pool noodles! Each participant received a folder that included a reading log, calendar of events, and special event info. For the second consecutive year we encouraged adults to register as well as children of all ages.

We held story times at Jumping Branch Elementary, Pipestem Nature Center, Hedrick House and Greenbrier Terrace Apartments, and in the Library. We also had several special events like Reading with Willie the Pony, Fort Night, Teen Netflix Night and Adult Coloring. Six weeks later we had a final celebration picnic at the Freight Depot. We challenged the attendees to a Water Balloon Battle: Kids vs. Adults!

A total of 63 students and 10 adults registered. All together they read over 500 books! (This is based on the 21 reading logs that we received.)
