Library rewards summer reading winners

by Sylene Argent

With the summer season offering ample opportunities to get distracted and have fun, the Essex County Library system hosted the Summer Reading Club program to its clients, to urged people to make time to read.

  Mary Mastronardi, Resource Assistant for the Essex Centre Library Branch, explained each of the 14 Essex County Library facilities offered the Summer Reading Club program to encourage clients of each library branch to get lost in the creative storytelling of books over the summer months.

  Library Branch clients of all ages were urged to record the number of books they read over the summer. Once a certain amount of books were read, the program participants were given a ballot for a chance to win cool prizes.

  In fairness, the program broke up the readers into age groups. Mastronardi said the program uptake in Essex Centre was great, especially in the children’s division.
