Summer Reading Club Success!

This year we had over 600 children and teens sign up for the summer reading club with a total of 4,917 books read!

Congratulations to Khai Ho and Lawrence Lane who completed the program and won a gift card in the teen reading raffle!

For those that missed the wrap up parties, don't forget to pick up your certificate and goody bag. Children can also look for their name on the bulletin board in the children's section of the library. We hope you'll join us again next summer!

We would like to thank our partners and sponsors who made our programs and prizes possible. The Friends of the Westside Libraries and the Lone Star Grant generously provided funding for programs and materials. Sponsors included, Adventure Zone, Carl's Jr., Cici's Pizza, Hot Topic, McDonald's, Peter Piper Pizza, Walmart Supercenter, and Whataburger.

We would also like to thank you for participating and attending our programs!
