The Fort Recovery Public Library has once again wrapped up a successful Summer Reading Program. The 2015 Summer Reading Program theme was “Every Hero Has a Story”. Over 300 students up through 5th grade participated by checking out books and participating in various programs. The students learned how Super Heroes can be more than just “cape-wearing” rescuers. Students learned about firefighters, policemen, historical figures and everyday people who can be heroes just by helping others out.
The Library Staff would like to congratulate the following prize winners: Jase, Riley, Olivia, Dylan, Gavin, Troy, Maddie, Caysen, Tyler, Carter, Andy, Anna, Matthew, Ross, and Ayden. Alivia was the top winner and won a 20” children’s bike donated by Wal-Mart. Middle school prize winners were: Riley, Ramsey, Peyton, and Dylan. David, Cindy, Crystal, Terri, Cindy, Marianne, Dian, Rose, and Betsy were all winners in the high school/adult drawings.
