Big Numbers for Summer Reading Program

The yearly summer reading program is wrapping up and it has been remarkable! During the program, there were 5,433 items checked out and 466 participants.  These numbers are much higher than in 2017.  This year also saw an increase in those that participated in activities and events.  All prize winners have been posted, so be sure to stop in soon to see if you are a winner. 

The staff would like to thank all participants for making it such a fun program! Also, special thanks goes out to the Village of Centerburg Staff who were so helpful in assisting with use of the park next to the library and for allowing us to use their meeting room for several of our programs.  We would also like to thank Diane Belcher of Twist 'n Shake for the donation of many, many ice cream treat coupons.  As always, those were our patrons favorite prizes.  Rounding out our thanks we can't forget Whits of Sunbury, the Elementary School Staff (especially John Morgan), Chipotle, Park National Bank/First Knox Bank and SPI of Mt. Vernon.  We are already thinking ahead to 2019 and looking for ways to make our program even better! If you have suggestions, let us know.
