The culmination of the 2013 Summer @ HPL Reading Program happened recently. Hundreds of children, teens and adults took part in this summer’s myriad programs. This year, we really focused on developing consistently fun and educational programs at the library that inspired kids to create as well as encouraging kids to read more than ever before.
Our community has played a huge part in supporting the Summer Reading Program, and we are grateful; we couldn’t do it without all of you. We’d particularly like to thank the Alaska Federal Credit Union for their funding of Dig Into Reading, the children’s programs, and the Clifford Jenson Fund, a donor advised fund of the Homer Foundation, for supporting Maker Mondays.
So many businesses and individuals helped with the Summer @ HPL program. We’d like to thank Beau Burgess, Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies, Fat Olives Restaurant, Frosty Bear Ice Cream, The Grog Shop, Kate Haas, the Homer Bookstore, Homer Theatre, the Homer Veterinary Clinic, Homer Winter Services, Homer’s Jeans, Kate Kuhns Aquatic Center, KBBI, Land’s End Resort, Brett Merrow, Ben and Mary Park, Public Works, Paul Rauch, Douglas Dean, Ally McCarron, Timeless Toys, Two Sisters Bakery, Ulmer’s, the incredible Board of the Friends of the Homer Public Library, and many others. Thank you for supporting summer reading for youth, teens and adults.
