Summer Reading Program’s Grand Prize Winners!

The 2011 Summer Reading Program’s eReader Grand Prize Winners!
Two lucky readers in the Library’s Summer Reading Program each won a Sony eReader, courtesy of Wal-Mart. They were presented with their prizes at the Board of Supervisors’ meeting on August 9.

Our Teen eReader Winner is Ana Calderon, a 16-year-old reader from the Mendota Branch Library. Her favorite book is B4UD8:  7 Things You Need to Know Before Your Next Date by Haley & Michael DiMarco. Her favorite series is   Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Our Children’s eReader Winner is James Rodriguez, a 10-year-old reader from the Parlier Branch Library. His favorite books are biographies about Michael Jordan. His favorite series is Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
Close to 12,000 children and teens participated in the Library’s free 2011 Summer Reading Program: One World, Many Stories from June 13th – July 17th. That’s 12,000 youth who proactively prevented “Summer Reading Loss” – the cumulative decline of reading levels over the summer. 

It truly was a successful fun-filled five weeks of the Library’s Summer Reading Program. We hope you will join us next year!
