Library News for August 19, 2011

Summer Reading Success

Summer Reading ended last weekend.   The hot summer months kept many of us indoors with a book in hand. 

Over one hundred adults participated in the program reading more than four hundred fifty books.

Fifty-four teens read 303 books.

Four hundred eighty kids read for 14,075 hours. 

The Annual Patron Survey (August 19- September 19, 2011)

Click here to take our annual survey.  It takes about ten minutes to complete the fifteen questions.  We use the information to direct services and programs in the coming year. You can also complete a paper survey at the circulation desk.  

Can you help?

With summer coming to an end, many of our marvelous helpers are heading back to school.  That means we are short-handed for shelving volunteers, especially on weekdays.  If you can commit just two hours a week, the library needs your help.

Coming Soon:  Everyone Reads in Wells Branch: 

Marley and Me: life and love with the world's worst dog by John Grogan

Everyone reads is a new program at the library that encourages all patrons to read and discuss the same book.  We have copies for every reading level from preschool to adult.
