And the Winner Is...!

What a terrific summer reading program for adults! Seventy one of you signed up to "Master the Art of READING", and the entry box was bulging this morning when I plunged my arm in and drew out the Grand Prize winner.

And the winner is....Richard Jones!

There were also eight weekly prize winners throughout the summer, Jessica DeGraaf, Rob Dacey, Rick Hunter, Patricia Bundy, Marge Constantine, Stephanie Rowe, Carol Fleury and Heather Cox. Congratulations to all the winners!

Many of you commented on the books you read this summer on your entry forms. Stay tuned for an article on the blog and in the fall newsletter detailing your favorite, and not so favorite summer reads.

Thank you to everyone who participated. Your interest and enthusiasm about the first Adult Summer Reading Program at your library has sparked ideas for next years program.
