Summer Reading 2020~It’s a Wrap!

It’s a wrap! As summer draws to an end, so does the Fort Bragg Library’s Summer Reading Program.

 

Despite the challenges, we had 140 participants—111 kids, 19 teens (12 and up) and 10 adults with 40 finishers, so far.

 

Although Summer Reading has ended, we are holding on to prizes for a few more weeks to give each participant an opportunity to bring their logs to the library’s RETURNS door where they can collect their final prize/s. If you were an online participant, the library has your results, so contact us at 707-964-2020 to set up an appointment to collect your prize/s. So, wrap up summer 2020 by claiming your prize today!

 

Prize breakdowns:

 

Kids and Teens—the kick-off prize was a Cowlicks Ice Cream gift certificate and the finisher’s prize, a free book. Also for kids and teens there will be 15 prize drawings for “Dig Deeper” t-shirts.

Adult prizes—a free book and a Mendocino Cookie Company gift card.
