Library's Summer Reading Program wraps up

Article Image Alt Text

The Fairfield Library officially wrapped up the Summer Reading Program “Libraries Rock” on Wednesday, Aug. 1, with an awards program celebrating reading for all – 469 children and accompanying adults – and special efforts by three exceptional young readers.  The Libraries Rock Program began with every participating child setting a goal for their own summer reading.  In turn, during the award ceremony each child who participated in the program received a certificate and every child who completed their individual reading goal got a second certificate. There were three categories based loosely on age and reading level: Family Reading Group for younger children not yet reading on their own; Independent Reader Group for children able to read by themselves; and Independent Reader Advanced for those whose reading ability allowed for longer books (think ‘chapter divisions’). Congratulations in the Family Reader Group go to Lincoln Hart whose family read 104 books together. Gracie Wilson took home the prize for Independent Reader, having read 123 books by herself. Finally the Independent Reader Advanced Award was taken home by Deris Talbert who read 21 long books.
