Our summer reading program for kids ended on July 15. We had 96 sign up this year, and about half read enough and got their time logs turned in on time to be put into a drawing for prizes. Results are as follows: The Lego Angry Birds set was won by Dylan Dinsdale; Chubby Puppy Beagle Katelyn Koopman; FurReal Roxie the Fox-Valerie Dunn; Car Carrier- Carter Egesdal; American Girl Doll collection-Jada Cheville; Fidget spinners-Ava Bown and Livy Moore; Melissa and Doug barn Alex Allen; Lego City- Grayson Young. We appreciate The Reinbeck Woman's Club helping us out with a donation. It was used to help with the Blank Park Zoo program expense and reading incentives.
