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’).
