Summer Readers Help Others

By , 13 August, 2016, No Comment


Thanks to our readers in our 2016 summer reading program, three local groups will receive donations to help with the services they offer the community!  The Trempealeau County Humane Society, the Blair Food Pantry, and the Blair Volunteer Fire Department will each receive a check from the library on behalf of all of our summer readers.  For the second year, participants in the program could vote for one of the groups based on how many minutes (or books) they read in a two month period.  After the votes were counted, the library donated money that would have been spent on small toys and prizes to each of the three groups instead.  In the two years that we have been using this new incentive program, we have never had one child (or parent) complain that they did not receive a toy!  All readers who finish the entire program, still receive one new book of their choice and the satisfaction of knowing they helped their community.  Thanks again to our wonderful readers!
