This year's Summer Reading Program was the most successful in the history of the Deschutes Public Library System. More than 2,320 children participated and completed 16, 881 hours of reading from June 11 - August 11. Nearly 600 more children participated than last year's program.
"We are delighted with the increased interest in the Summer Reading Program," said Youth Services Manager Heather McNeil. "We made a real effort to get out to the school's this year to promote the program and enticed the kids with lots of fun prizes and free books. We are very proud of all these kids who participated."
