Successful summer reading program


Letter to the Editor

I would like to thank all of the Shelby County children and youth, along with their parents, grandparents and caregivers, who participated in our “Build a Better World” summer reading program for 2017. We had more than 1,300 children and youth sign up for the summer reading program, with almost 800 completing the program. Well done!

A great big thank you goes to the Commonwealth Bank and Trust Company for sponsoring all of our entertaining and educational special performers.

Thanks too, to the Friends of the Library and Reading Reindeer for providing “reward” books for the children who finished the program. They loved picking out a special book to keep.

Reading opens up the world to anyone willing to read. Thank you to our wonderful patrons and partners for a great summer.
