Summer Reading Wraps at the Library

Summer Reading Wraps at the Library

This year’s Whitewright Public Library Summer Reading Program had a total of 245 participants for our weekly programs: Touch-A-Truck, Scout’s Legacy, Cosplay Day, and Library Lagoon.

This year we featured “brag tags” where participants could earn a bead each time they visited the library, with special beads for attending programs. We also had a 100 book challenge, with participants reading 100 picture books (or 100 chapters) to earn a special bead and a prize from our treasure chest.

We couldn’t provide our programs without community support. We’d like to extend a special thanks to local businesses who participated in this year’s scavenger hunt: Arroyo’s Mexican Restaurant, Whitewright Area Chamber of Commerce, Triple R Barbeque, Gateway/Sonic, Legend Bank, Whitewright Pharmacy, Dairy Queen, Mama Suzy’s, O'Reilly Auto Parts, and City Hall. We had 53 completed lists returned for a prize from our treasure chest.

We’d like to thank the City’s Public Works, EMS, and Fire Department for participating in our Touch-A-Truck program, as well as Sanitation Solutions for bringing a garbage truck. We’d also like to thank Scout’s Legacy for presenting a program about service dogs.

Thanks to Timothy Finley, Jaden Patterson, Tona Shiplet, Claudia Carpenter, Ashley Mickelson, and Linda Vickers for assisting with in-person programs.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Legend Bank, Jake Shockley State Farm, Clown Around Party Rental, and Gateway Sonic.

Join us again next summer, with the theme “All Together Now”.
