Letter: Thanks for support of summer reading

Thank you, Park Rapids area businesses for joining the library as partners in education to promote reading and decrease summer learning loss for the young people in our communities.

We had 570 participants (ages 2-18). Thanks, in part, to the wonderful incentives we were able to offer, our percentage of reading logs turned in at the end of the program was higher than in the past. Thank you for your generosity and for caring about our children.

Many area businesses and organizations donated cash and/or prizes (including custom designed book bags and t-shirts, gift cards, bookmarks, coupons for ice cream cones, smoothies, cookies, and pizza, free passes to Carter’s Red Wagon Farm Pumpkin party, toys, games, books and one giant pumpkin).
