Summer Reading Success
The library’s summer reading program is officially over now, but we sure had a lot of fun. We had five afternoons of reading with an average attendance of 23 each day. We had 35 kids earn prizes for time spent reading. This resulted in giving away 31 ice cream cones, 1 hot dog, 160 treasure chest prizes, and 41 pizza/movie rentals. For the Jr High/High schoolers, we had a drawing for a Kindle Fire E-Reader. Every time they read a book, they were able to put an entry into the drawing box. Out of 25 entries, Karina Kitt was the lucky winner of the Kindle. The kids had fun and hopefully they increased their reading skills over the summer.
This was all made possible by the generous donations from local organizations. Emily Jandreau was great in helping organize the program. The Custer County Foundation gave the library a grant for $400, Trotters Whoa & Go donated some of the pizza/movies, and SWAT donated the Kindle. It was definitely a community effort, and we appreciate everyone who helped
