“Come with me,' Mom says. To the library. Books and summertime go together.” ― Lisa Schroeder, Children’s & Young Adult Author
436 kids, teens, and adults read to their own beat during the 2015 Summer Reading Program. 2,593 summer readers of all ages registered at the Summer Reading Kick-Off Festival, successfully launching the summer reading season. An amazing 40,875 books were logged in over the course of the program. With 25 music-themed programs to coordinate with this year’s theme, 1,423 patrons “boogied to the beat” throughout the summer. Additionally, 259 volunteers assisted with summer programs. Ride & Read, S.T.A.R., and Special Event volunteers clocked in over 2,080 hours. Congratulations to the devoted readers and dedicated volunteers who made 2015 such a finger-snapping, toe-tapping success.
