Last week, I had the privilege to award prizes to all participants that completed this year’s Richards Library Summer Reading Program. 29 children signed up in June and 18 completed the program. Over the summer, these Super-Readers read 749 books (last year it was 490)!! The winners of each grade category received a Champion’s lawn sign and a $50 Gift Certificate to Barnes & Noble Book Store. All participants that completed the program received a certificate, lawn sign, FREE meal tickets to Texas Roadhouse Restaurant and Applebee’s Restaurant, a FREE pass to the Museum of Innovation and Science in Schenectady and a FREE Pass to Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke. The Champion Readers were: Benjamin Birkholtz-Kindergarten; Tieryn Benedict-Broadway-1st Grade; Angelique Ingalls-2nd Grade; Caitlin O’Donnell-3rd Grade and Dymonn Prosser-4th Grade. Congratulations to ALL that completed the program and WELL DONE!!!
