Winter Reading Program
The library is pleased with the participation in the Winter Reading Program, which ended on February 28th. The adult program had 174 registrants with 109 completing. Thirty-five teens signed up for the program and 17 completed the requirement. The children's department had 80 families participating with 34 successfully finishing. Kate's Kart, a charity that gives books to children who are hospitalized, will receive 51 donations due to the generosity of participants in the Winter Reading Program.
Anyone who finished was eligible for the drawing for special prizes. Elaine Miller and Paula Sullivan won two Komet Hockey tickets each. In the teen program, Patrick Evans and Tommy Wolf each won two passes to Sky Zone. The bowling parties were won by the families of Mayumi Davis and Erin Mason. Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who enjoyed some reading/listening during February. It was a great way to pass the cold and snowy days.
Written by Susan DaileyI’m Susan Dailey, the manager of the Ossian Branch Library. I’ve worked at the library since I was in high school. (In fact, I received my first library paycheck before my driver’s license!) I’m also a “minor celebrity” to the kids in Ossian because I read books to the preschoolers and kindergartners each month. I've written two books for librarians with ideas for storytime and have taught workshops on the topic around the country.
