Results: Summer Reading 2020: Imagine Your Story

Thank you everyone for such a wonderful summer! This year we were unsure of how participation in a mostly virtual summer reading program would be. You really knocked our socks off!

  • • We had 115 participants, ages 0-18!
  • • Last year, we had 224 participants, who read a total of 884.5 hours!
  • • This year our readers logged.... 929 hours!!!
  • • Our readers collected 187 Prizes (and not everyone has checked in with us yet)!
  • • We handed out around around 65 Craft Kits and Storytime Kits a week (6 weeks, for a total of around 390 Craft Kits... WOW)!

Thank you so much for your support, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. We are taking a brief break from youth/teen programming until September. We plan on continuing to offer Virtual Storytimes and Programs, along with accompanying take Home Craft/Activity Kits.
