Summer Reading 2008 @ your library

The 2008 summer reading program is now in the history books. A lot of kids, tweens, and teens visited all of our libraries and boy, did they ever read! We are still are adding up all of the hours read and it looks like we might break some records. Well done! Many thanks to Park Side Federal Credit Union for underwriting our summer reading program and volunteering at our branches to help our program run smoothly.

Our grand prize winners have been awarded their prizes and are probably enjoying them right now. Winners of the Imagination Station gift certificates are Eileen Crusta, Dakota Henson, Jack McDaniel, and Timmy Murray. Winners of the iPod Nanos are Shantay Carr, Natalie Harding, and J.J. Harris. Congratulations to all!!

There were lots of extra hours read for Readers to the Rescue. We will be donating $1500 to the Flathead County Animal Shelter, which will be used to help all of the animals there. Many thanks to all who kept reading after getting their own prizes. Keep up the good work. We would like to thank our Friends of the Flathead County Library System for contributing the money for this part of the program.

Next year's theme has been announced. For kids the theme is Be Creative @ Your Library for kids. The teen theme is Express Yourself @ Your Library. Start getting those creative juices flowing and we'll see you @ your library!

This was one particularly FUN theme to work with! I learned alot about insects, arachids and bugs and was delighted to pass along what I learned to the many participants. There are so many good children's books out there on the theme, so many that it was hard to choose just a few to read each week! I am looking forward to next year (and planning away!).
