HAMPTON -- The Children’s Summer Reading Program at Lane Memorial Library concluded recently with a grand finale “Pirate Party.”
The party began with a puppet show featuring the talents of Carol and Crew. Everyone enjoyed some pirate cake, and “Treasure Reading” participants were awarded certificates of achievement and other gifts.
The night was capped off by a raffle for prizes which included a $50 gift certificate from Wal-Mart and a $30 gift certificate from Toys 'R’ Us.
This year the Lane Library’s Children’s Room had 213 Hampton area children register for “Treasure Reading.” Approximately 2556 books were read during a six week period for a total of 249,210 minutes. What a cause to celebrate!
The library staff thanked all the boys and girls who did such a fantastic job of reading this summer, and all those parents whose support and encouragement helped make the reading program such a huge success.
