Reading Contest Winners 2006

Thanks to all the kids and teens who participated in the 2006 Tenth Library Summer Reading Contest! Participants wrote a few sentences about each book they read. For every 5 points worth of books they read, they could redeem a basic prize. These included fun stuff like bubbles, superballs, yo-yos, bookmarks and keychains. Some turned in book sheets on 15 points worth of books and redeemed "mid-level" prizes. These included jewelry, videos, paperbacks and tote bags.

Our top two readers in each age division took home the grand prizes, bookstore gift certificates.

Youth Division - age 11 and younger
First - Rebecca Hormann, $25 Barnes & Noble gift card

Second - Victoria Duggan, $20 Barnes & Noble gift card

Participants: Ben Rein, Kate Shover

Teen Division - age 12 to 18
First - Eleanor Linton, $25 Barnes & Noble gift card

Second - Noah Cohen, $20 Barnes & Noble gift card

Participants: Hannah Cohen, Josiah Cohen, Beverly Jeanette Linton, Joshua Ryken, Allison Wattenbarger

The goal of the contest is to get more families using the library. We definitely saw a big increase in the number of patrons visiting during June, July and August. Next year we hope to see more kids and teens turning in sheets and taking home prizes.
