Thank You Walkertown Community For Your Summer Reading Support
We at the Walkertown Library would like to express our gratitude to all those who attended, volunteered and/or supported our Summer Reading programs this year. Once again, our community was enthusiastic about attending and using the services at Walkertown this summer.
Over 15,000 materials were borrowed, thanks to NC Cardinal, from all over North Carolina between June and July, and Eleven families enjoyed our Kaleideum passes during that time. More than 600 reading logs were taken and close to 400 logs were returned.
Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the Friends of the Walkertown Library, we were able to bring back some of your favorite programs, including the NC Zoo and The Balloon Lady (Donna Pruett) and offer new programs like the Grey Seal Puppet Show Tangle of Tales and an evening of storytelling and music with Riley Baugus. Our room capacity was put to the test with several of these wonderful programs. All in all, we were able to offer 159 programs this summer with 2,571 community attendees.
Last but not least, we'd like to congratulate our 2017 Summer Reading winners from Walkertown. Readers who returned their reading logs were entered into a drawing for one of three $25 gift cards to Barnes & Noble. Contestants were divided up by age 0-12, 13-17 and 18+ to increase their chances of winning. We appreciate everyone who participated. Congratulations to our winners!
Lauren is Walkertown's 2017 Summer Reading winner. She was excited to receive her prize, a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble, that is sponsored by the Friends of the Walkertown Library! Not only did Lauren participate in the Summer Reading Program, she is also participating in "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" and is already in the 600s!
Congratulations and nice reading, Lauren!
