I’m sad to report that Adult Summer Reading is officially over here at the library. I wanted to thank everyone who participated in our reading club by reading and attending our events, especially our finale party and quiz show last week. We had 151 participants who read a total of 5,940 hours, which works out to be 356,400 minutes. Wow! And I thought I read a lot. Also, our top reader did 250 hours of reading!
Thanks to all those who came out to test their literary smarts at our quiz show last Thursday. There wasn’t one question that went unanswered, and we had some pretty tricky ones in there. For example, do you know how many digits are in an ISBN? Can you remember who won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction last year? We also raffled off our big prizes and some smaller door prizes and then of course ate some yummy cake.
Finally, I wanted to send out a heartfelt message of gratitude to all of our wonderfully generous sponsors. We could not have done it without Azle Albertson’s, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble (University Park Village), Carol Presnell, the Ft. Worth Museum of Science and History, Half Price Books, JJ’s Fast Stop, Jodi Thompson, Kwik Kar, Pinnacle Bank, and Salon Galleria.
So if you happened to miss our Adult Summer Reading Club, don’t be too sad – I have a feeling it will return next year. And I already can’t wait!
