Kewanna Public Library will be offering a fine forgiveness program “Read Down Your Fines!” to patrons 18 & under.  Readers may sign-up to participate in “Read Down Your Fines!” beginning Sept. 1, 2020.   Readers with fines accumulated at Kewanna Public Library will be eligible to participate.  The reader and their parent will be asked to sign a reading contract.  The reader must receive approval at the library in order to participate.  All books that will be used as credit for this program are to be checked out or read in the library by December 30, 2020.   Start the New Year with no library fines!   Stop in at the library to sign up soon!

Congratulations to our 2020 summer readers!  Summer reading was new & different in 2020, but we still had a great Summer Reading Program!   Our 8 week program began on June 2 and ended on July 25.  116 youth participated in our Summer Reading Program by picking up the weekly Craft to Go Kits which included everything to make a fun craft based on fairytales, folklore, and fantasy plus a book to keep.  The Craft to Go Kits were a big success!

We ended “Imagine Your Story “with our annual Summer Reading Celebration on Thursday, July 30.  Over 80 people attended this special event.  Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic Safety Guidelines, we were unable to have our celebration as we have in the past.   But the ice cream cups that we served were a big hit on such a hot evening!

We passed out Summer Reading Certificates and many door prizes to those attending.  The following prizes were awarded: Reading Prize winners- Ages 0-6  Deacon Finke; 7-11 David Stangle , 12-18  Emaline Rude.   Grand Prize winners-Levi Jones, Mason Boros, Ashlyn Bailey, Alexa Finke.  The Special Prizes were donated by Fulton County HOPE.  Special Prizes winners-Hannah Rude won a girls 20 in. bicycle and Colton Konopasek won a boys 20 in. bicycle.

We also awarded prizes for our Castle Building Contest.  We had 12 castle entries with 15 talented children entering their special creations!  The winners were Prettiest Castle- Bella Rude; Most Creative Castle- Eli, Isaac, and Sam White; Castle Building Contest winners Ages 0-6  Christopher Jones; Ages 7-11  Anne & Elyse Jones; Ages 12-18  Emaline Rude

Everyone had a good time at our celebration and left with big smiles!
