Last Week of Summer Reading 2011!

20, 247

That's how many people have signed up for our Summer Reading program, One World, Many Stories/Un Mundo, Muchas Historias, so far!  We've had programs aplenty-from tunes by Mr. Stinky Feet to cooking classes with Gilda Latzky,  Kanji Luck Stones to Wii Play, Balinese Dance with Sari Megumi to Ikebana Flower Arranging workshops, with 18, 735 attendees. Some branches still have programs this week-check your local branch's website!  Our Battle of the Bands finale will be at Main Library on July 30th, featuring the song stylings of Sean Cairns, Focus'd, & My Shadow Plays Beside Me.  We've had 8 individuals, families & teams qualify for the "World Traveler" prize by visiting all 16 branches. I hope you've had a good time-I know I have!

& we're not done yet! There's still a week to go-the program ends on July 30th. This week babies, kids & teens will all get books for their prize, & there will be one last prize drawing for adults on Saturday. (We've given out a total of 17, 664 prizes to kids & babies so far.)

Of course, after June 30th will be the drawing for the grand prizes: for adults, the Dine Around the World certificate package or the Continuing Education gift certificates or the Isotope family pack of tickets; for teens, the netbook or digital camera. So stop by your local library, sign up if you haven't already, & make sure to drop off your reading logs by July 30th!

Also, special thanks to our 1,072 teen volunteers for all your hard work!
