Online Summer Reading Program 2011
The Online SRP was a great success for our first year! We had 186 participants who read a whopping 12,178 hours! We had participation from all over the library district with representation from all but a couple of our 28 branch communities. We had all ages of participants although most were from 11-15 years of age.
The raffle prizes were provided by donations from the Wenatchee Downtown Rotary, the Friend’s of the Wenatchee Library, Academic Toolbox and A Book for All Seasons. Thank you to all of these groups who supported our kids’ reading efforts this summer. The prizes given out were: two games, two bookstore gift certificates, over 18 books and two grand prize winners each winning a Barnes & Noble Nook ereader. Look for the Online Summer Reading Program next summer for even more great links, book reviews and prizes!
What was your or your child’s favorite book this summer? The favorite at our house was The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart. If you like kids with very special talents who are put into impossible situations you will love The Mysterious Benedict Society Series. We can’t wait for book number three!
