Summer Reading Program Wrap-Up

The Summer Reading Program was a huge success at the San Marino Public Library. The number of children registered for the "Ride A Wild Tale" program reached an all time high of 660. The YA program also had an excellent turn out with over 175 teens participating in the "Get Wild…Read" program. The San Marino Public Library would like to congratulate all of the 165 children who read 20 books during the summer and completed the youth program. Those children who finished the program received a reading award and prize along with a gift certificate from both Los Gueros Mexican restaurant in Monrovia and San Marino Toy and Book Shoppe.

The annual summer program concluded with a "Rootin Tootin" magic show performed by magician Mark H. Wurst. All those in attendance were treated to a western feast that included hot dogs, baked beans, chips, and baked desserts. The winners of various contests held throughout the summer were also announced.

The staff at the San Marino Public Library would like to thank all the children and teens who participated in the San Marino Public Library Summer Reading Program. We would also like to thank all the "Ticktockers" from the National Charity League who donated a countless number of volunteer hours. We would also like to thank the various businesses and organizations that donated incentives to both the children's and teen program. Last, but definitely not least, we would especially like to thank the Friends of the San Marino Public Library. Their hard work and dedication makes it possible to continue the Summer Reading Program every year.
