DUNCANVILLE, TX - Duncanville Public Library Summer Reading Club participants, Olivia Cunningham and Isabella Tyler, are the grand prize winners of Kindle e-readers, courtesy of The Friends of the Duncanville Public Library.
Olivia is a seventh grader at Clay Classical Academy and Isabella is a fourth grader at Cross of Christ. Kids and teens who completed the 25-hour reading log were entered in the grand prize drawing. The two winners were selected out of 817 kids and teens who completed reading logs this summer.
On Your Mark, Get Set… READ! was this year’s Summer Reading Club theme and the library offered 62 free programs with a total attendance of 3,015 patrons. Each year the Duncanville Public Library hosts the summer reading club to provide incentives to encourage kids and teens to read over the summer. Studies show that participation in summer reading programs enables children to maintain essential reading skills during their summer vacation and as a result, they are better prepared for the upcoming school year.
