Teen Summer Reading Program

The 2017 Teen Summer Reading Program, “Reading by Design,” was another great success! Teens were offered the opportunity to catch up on some much-needed reading. Participants won great weekly prizes for their diligent reading and attended a weekly fun day at the Riverbender.com Community Center. At the end of the five week program, each participant was given a free book, a certificate of participation, and a goody bag. The participants were also entertained by Circus Kaput’s own Wonder Wheelers. The Wonder Wheelers entertained the kids with their daring unicycle tricks and choreographed juggling act. We would like to congratulate this year’s grand prize winner for the most hours of reading, Trinity Springman. Our runner-up was Abbie Gorsage who also received a goody bag and a gift card. Congratulations to both of these girls and to all our participants. We hope to see everyone back for next year’s reading program, “Reading Takes You Everywhere.”
