The 2006 Summer Quest reading program, created and designed by Library staffer Dave Burbank, was a rousing success. We celebrated the program's end on Sept. 11, with a party attended by 35 kids and adults. Everyone got a prize, and Camden Roberts won the raffle, taking home a huge stuffed bear, which had been "living" in the Library's storage room.
Here's a "by the numbers" look at the 2006 Summer Quest program:
__79 kids signed up for the program
__40 kids actually read one or more books
__Those 40 kids read a total of 343 books!! That's right, 40 kids and 343 books!
__ The highest number of books read by one participant was 40. The second-highest number was 39 books, and the third-highest was 36 books.
Look for an all-new Summer Quest program next summer!
