Every year the Ray County Library hosts summer reading programs for children ages 3-18 from June 1 to July 31. The library sets reading challenges based on the child’s age and grade and offers many incentives along the way.
One attraction are the awards received from various business and organizations throughout Ray County.
The 2012 Summer Reading Programs “Dream Big Read” and “Own the Night” concluded July 31, and many children met all of the reading requirements to be eligible for the library’s grand prize drawings. Weekly book drawings and a coloring contest were also held for the registrants. Pictured here are the winners in separate categories for Grand Prizes, Coloring Contest and Book Drawings.
