Warren Public Library's Fizz, Boom Read! summer reading program for children has successfully come and gone. We run our programs for eight weeks every summer, and those busy eight weeks go by fast. We had a total of 33 Fizz, Boom, Read! programs which were attended by 1,022 children.
There is always a reading portion of summer reading where children sign up and receive reading logs on which to keep track of books they read - or had read to them - over the summer. This year 109 children returned their reading logs during the designated time frame which was July 21-August 4. All of these children received certificates, drawstring bags, books and other prizes. The names of these children are below. If you know one of these children be sure to congratulate them for reading over the summer and for a job well done. These names will also be turned in to their respective schools in hopes that the children will be acknowledged in some way.
According to the reading logs turned in, a total of 3,052 books were read by those 109 children. Seeing as not all children remember to return their reading logs, and seeing how many books are checked out from the Children's Department throughout the summer, we know that many children are reading still enjoy the pleasure of reading. The 2015 summer reading theme for children is "Every Hero has a Story" and the focus will be on superheroes, so that will be a lot of fun next year.
