June through August brought eager readers to the library signing up for summer reading, finding something to read, attending a variety of summer programs ranging from Japanese Taiko drums to a Repair Fair and a Paint-Along.
In July some of the most rapid readers began returning their completed reading records or their entries for the Adult drawings, along with comments about what they had read:
From Sue: Wild Card by Stuart Woods: “It’ hilarious to me how the main characters have so much money and power that each of them, with a phone call, can get whatever he/she needs or wants. Anybody’s fantasy!”
And Heather: Love Your Enemies by Arthur C. Brooks: “Insightful read into how and why we must disagree better and without contempt.”
In September, four lucky adult readers picked up their winning baskets. Smiles all around. One winner, Christopher Adeo said, “We are SO EXCITED to have won!! Thank you so much for being part of the reading program, we really appreciate everything the library does :)
Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this a record-breaking year for Tigard. Now you have a whole eight months to read your way to another record-breaking year. Well done!
