flip_digital_video_recorder…Cassidy Clouse and Hannah Espiritu!  These girls both won a Flip digital video camcorder—the top prizes in our summer reading contest.  Congratulations to our participants and prize winners here.  We gave away hundreds of dollars in gift cards to Wal-Mart and Books-a-Million and Game Stop.

Looking forward to more summer reading next year.  Any thoughts as to what we’d do differently?  What prizes would you like to see awarded?  Leave your comments here and let us know.

photo contest 006The overall winner of the summer reading photo contest is Elizabeth Brummett!  Her picture won Overall Best in Show and beat out the adult competion.  Elizabeth also placed 2nd for other entries.  Next, a big hurrah for Jessica Weisheit, who received 3rd place in the teen division for her picture from Yosemite National Park.    Everyone’s pictures looked fabulous and I appreciate all of your creative energy out there.  I hope to see more pictures in the future.  Check out all the winners’ photos in our display by the library elevator.
