Reading program big success

I would like to thank the sponsors, presenters, volunteers, parents and library personnel who helped make the Homer Public Library's Summer Reading Program a great success. Special thanks to Shank Electric and the Friends of the Library for their continued sponsorship. Thank you also to Jonni Roos for her help in setting up the programs and to the presenters Eddie Wood, Beth Trowbridge, Lois Betini with the Pratt Museum, and puppeteers Axel and Eryn Gillam for providing outstanding programs.

Many local businesses and individuals donated funds, incentives and prizes to keep the children reading throughout the summer while a wonderful group of volunteers made the final party a huge success. Without all of these people the program would not exist. Check out our library bulletin board singing the praises of these special local people.

Thank you one and all.
