FIZZ, BOOM, READ & SPARK A REACTION DECLARED A SUCCESS
Potter County Library’s Summer Reading Programs were successful due to the wonderful people and resources that helped make it happen. We were thrilled to have so many volunteers that stepped in to help the kids participate, and we were so grateful for the monetary contributions that helped purchase the materials and prizes for all of our programming. Our attendance at June programs was astounding, with an average of 35-40 attendees, and in July, although schedules were busier, we still averaged 15-20 participants. In addition, our bookmobile had about 50 participants that were devoted readers and game-players; upon completion, they were rewarded with free ice cream cones from the Prairie Stop in Hoven. Altogether, we had about 180 participants involved in our summer reading programming. The following people and organizations provided the much-needed funding to aid in our success:
BRONZE DONATORS: Norma Marks, Marla Nold, Richard Whitver, and Ralph and Betty Holzwarth.
SILVER DONATORS: Bill and Fran Coppersmith, John and Bridget Lake, Daniel and Shayna Tews, Bert Van Essen, Arthur and Joane Beringer, and the Prairie Stop in Hoven, SD.
GOLD DONATORS: Avera Gettysburg Hospital, Gettysburg in Action, Waneta Order of the Easter Star, and Lew and Mary Robbennolt.
***All summer reading participants may pick up their final prizes at Potter County Library in the next week or two. Anyone who participated individually or in group activities has earned several bonus prizes, including an iron-on T-shirt transfer (preschool-5th grade) or book bag (6th-12th grade), as well as a free ticket to the South Dakota State Fair.
