It shouldn’t surprise you that the library staff at the Azle Memorial Library love to read, right? To get in the spirit of summer, we did our own version of a summer reading contest by keeping track of how many hours we read, beginning June 1. The winner would be whoever filled up all the squares on our summer reading poster, equaling 230 hours. Well, we’re happy to announce that Tracey, who runs our Library at Home program, was the first to reach that goal! Way to go, Tracey! She said one of the books she most enjoyed reading was “The Husband Tree” by Mary Connealy, and her favorite audiobook was “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett. Adding up everyone’s hours resulted in a whopping 685 hours read in a little over two months. So, if you’re looking for a good book to read, chances are one of our well-read staff members will be able to find you something you’ll like!
