Rush City Summer Reading Program “Tasty” Success

The summer reading program at the Rush City Library was a tasty success with over 200 children participating. With the completion of 10 books the children received a large curly lollipop but the big prize was given when the children read 20 books. Al Stewert of “Big Al’s Cafe and Pizzeria”generously gave each successful reader a personal pizza. “The kids were so excited about finishing this year and we had a record number of them complete the program. We really appreciate Al’s support and help with this project.” states the library staff. Parents have reported that Al makes the children feel like “real winners” when they present their coupon.

The summer reading program is an important feature of the library. It helps the children keep their reading skills up, promotes family reading time and is a fun way to pass the summer. Visit your library and see why it’s called “the best bargain in town”.
