The Numbers are In!
August 14, 2012
Mid-Continent Public Library’s Summer Reading Program made a profound impact on 62,963 participants this summer. With 145,510 books and prizes distributed to Listeners and Readers and 17,059 Library Bucks earned in the Teen Program, this year’s program showed that it is easy to "Dream Big -- Read!"
The Teen Summer Reading Program, "Own the Night," took on a new life this year as teens were encouraged not just to read, but to write book reviews to earn Library Bucks that could be used to purchase books, prizes, and Library services including replacement cards, free prints and copies, and that could even be used through the end of the year to pay down fines.
As an added bonus, five teens were randomly drawn to receive a free Netbook from MCPL. The winners are:
Blue Springs North Branch – Lyndi Weisberg
Blue Ridge Branch – Jazzlynn Testerman
Bucker Branch – Ashley Hahne
Liberty Branch – Chris Hope
North Oak Branch – Naomi Maresch
While these five were our teen grand prize winners, all readers and families who participated came out as winners by learning the power of fun and entertainment that reading can bring!
