Summer Reading Grand Prize Winners!

Greetings!  I hope you enjoyed participating in Summer Reading this year, because we rocked it!  I’m happy to state that nearly 5,000  people registered, and participants, who were 6 and older, read a staggering 28, 113 hours!  Our youngest participants, ages 0 to 5, were read a total of 18,528 books this summer!  Way to go, Mesa County!  We are definitely building a better world.

Also, congratulations for Caprock Academy for winning our elementary school reading competition!  Caprock students have won 4 years in a row for reading the most.  They will be receiving a trophy and their school name will be engraved on our Summer Reading plaque in the Children’s Center at the Central Library.
