LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The LaFollette Library concluded its Summer Reading Program on Wednesday morning with awards, prizes and a pizza party. According to Librarian Nancy Green, this year’s Summer program was well attended, with more than 1,050 books read.
Alex Bowman, Khalessi Perry and Alynna Perry read 120 books each, earning them top reader awards. Certificates and prizes were also given to all kids who read at least 10 books during the reading program time frame.
Through Summer Reading, children were entertained and educated with various programs including a ventriloquist act, a program by Cove Lake State Park and a presentation by the LaFollette Fire Department.
“These programs encourage and foster an early love of reading in kids and gives them something fun and educational during the summer,” Green said. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/23/2022-6AM)
