Dig into Reading @ KUTPL was fantastic!

Congratulations readers for making our summer reading program a big success!  Our 8 week program began on May 26th and ended on July 22nd.   81 readers participated in our program this year, which is 25 more than last year.  The readers were very busy and earned over 10,000 points during the summer.  This year’s readers received more than double the points received in 2014.   The Most Points Prize winners were: Ages 0-7 Josiah and Reuben Helt; Ages 8-12 Emma Green; Ages 13-19 Nicole Hurlburt.  Grand Prize entries were received for attending summer programs and for checking out books.  The Grand Prize winners were:  Ages 0-7 Myli Rude; Ages 8-12 Zoey Hunnicutt; Ages 13-19 Michael Robinson.  The June drawing prize winner was Jo Jo Flickinger, and the July drawing prize winner was Ava Green.

We ended Dig into Reading! with our Summer Reading Celebration on Wednesday, July 22nd.  Over 60 people attended this special event.  We had face painting, sno-cones, good food, free give aways, and all children received a free book to take home.  Summer Reading Completion Certificates were given to all finishers for their hard work.  The special prize winners were announced, and the winners were awarded their prizes.  Many door prizes were also given out to those in attendance.  Everyone had a good time at the Summer Reading Celebration and left with big smiles!

We would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous donations: Applebee’s, Big R, Casey’s, Country Lanes, Dairy Queen, Fulton County REMC, Indiana Beach, Kewanna Metal Specialties, Kewanna Screen Printing, Verl Kreamer’s Sno-Cones, Luke’s Auction Barn, and Winamac Coil Spring.

We would also like to thank everyone involved in making our summer reading so successful: parents, library staff, sponsors, teachers, community members, and of course our summer readers.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

Don’t forget always Dig into Reading!
