I want to give a big (virtual) round of applause to all of our summer reading participants. Audra and I weren’t sure what to expect when we planned the OWL’s first ever Adult Summer Reading program. We hoped it would be a success–that readers would enjoy it and that it would encourage all of us to read outside of our comfort zones–but we never imagined the great numbers and positive feedback we’ve received. 118 people signed up, 55 met at least 8 challenges (and were invited to the After Hours Celebration) and of those 33 people completed the whole challenge card!
There are many of you who discovered that you really enjoy graphic novels, or audiobooks, or essays. And some who now know they definitely do not. 😉 We loved hearing about what you were reading all summer and helping provide you with suggestions to meet your challenges. And 647 challenges were met!!! Bravo!
It was a fantastic summer of reading and we cannot wait to do it again next year.
Your devoted librarian,
