Treasure Reading comes to a Grand Finale!

The Children’s Summer Reading Program at Lane Memorial Library concluded Thursday, August 3 with a grand finale “Pirate Party.”

Our party began with a puppet show featuring the talents of Carol and Crew. We then enjoyed Pirate Cake while participants were awarded certificates of achievement and other gifts. The night was capped off by a raffle for prizes that included a $50.00 gift certificate from Wal-Mart and a $30.00 gift certificate from Toys R Us.

This year we had 213 Hampton area children register for “Treasure Reading.” Approximately 2556 books were read during a six week period for a total of 249,210 minutes. What a cause to celebrate!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the boys and girls who did such a fantastic job of reading this summer. We would also like to thank all those parents whose support and encouragement helped make our reading program such a huge success.
