1st reader to reach 200 hours!
Congratulations to Emily, a second grader from Stonegate Elementary School! She is our first Summer Reading Participant to reach 200 hours of reading. WOW, that is a lot of reading!
Let’s learn a little more about Emily.
Emily’s favorite book series is The American Girl series. Josephina’s Surprise is Emily’s favorite book of the series. Outside of reading, dancing is Emily’s favorite activity. When asked how she was able to reach this goal she said that she everywhere and she read at least 5 hours a day. Her brother said that most days she read way more than five hours! She read in the car, at the store, and walking around her house.
The Youth Services Librarians are stoked that a second grader was able to read 200 hours this summer. Emily can still log her time to be entered into the weekly raffle drawings, but she won’t get any more prizes, now she will be reading for the love of reading and that is an excellent prize in itself!
