Summer Reading Wrap-up

Party PerformerA total of 970 children signed up for the popular annual Summer Reading Program that rewarded children each week for reading with special programs, crafts and small prizes. All children who entered in the program received a special Reading Certificate. Those who completed the 8-week program also received a book. It is estimated that the children in the Summer Reading Program read a total of 14,400 books.

Children who read and turned in logs for at least three weeks this summer, were entered in a drawing for bicycles, with safety helmets, at each of the three branches. The Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library donated the bicycles, helmets, books and the parties. The winners names were drawn at their branch end of Summer Reading parties, July 31 and August 1.

From Southside: It's cool that both of our winners have twin siblings! Evan said he was so excited when he found out he won. Being a star reader, he was able to pick a new book as a much-earned prize. He picked a Three Bears board book so that he could read it to his 11 day old sister. Both he and his twin brother Michael visit the library on a regular basis with their family.

Joanna won the girl's bike at Southside. Her twin sister and father came in with her to claim her prize. She said so was so surprised that she won the bike and she said she comes to the library because there are so many different kinds of books.
