Summer Reading Wrap-Up

 

 

Glen Ellyn Public Library patrons must be extremely full this summer. The 2994 individuals who participated in our Reading Is So Delicious Summer Reading program certainly digested an extreme amount of books. From May 21 through August 13, adults and high school students read 2989 books; children read 58,502.25 hours; and our pre-readers earned 225 Book Bucks.

Adult participants also received custom GEPL cutting boards and chances to win gift baskets; high school students received tee-shirts, pizzas, books, and chances to win a Kindle; children received food and adventure coupons, books, and chances to win weekly prizes.

Congratulations to our adult gift basket winners: 
Jeanne Kelby and Donna Lemmer.

Our summer reading program may be over, but summer is still going strong, so keep on reading!

Thank you so much to our generous sponsors for making our summer reading program so successful:
