Grand Prize Winners Announced!

Excitement is in the air! Winners are being announced!

The final drawings have been held for the Berks County Public Libraries Summer Reading Grand Prizes for 13 to 18 year olds and for children 12 and under. Plus the Local Grand Prize winner has been determined for the Boyertown Adult Summer Reading Program.

Winner of the laptop computer for children under age 12 was James Phyrillas (11) who visited the Exeter Community Library. His mom said to him... "That's what you get for reading so much!"

Winner of the laptop computer for teens age 13 - 18 was Megan Stehman (13) who visited the Boyertown Community Library. Megan said she didn't have access to a computer at home and always came to the library to use the computers there.

Winner of the Boyertown Adult Summer Reading Grand Prize was Connie Jordan of Barto. She brings her children to the storytimes at the library and finds time to read for herself as well. She said, "I never win anything!" Now she has a plethora of prizes: a beautiful Hand-blown Glass Vase from Taylor Backes; a gift certificate and bone-shaped treat saver from The Spotted Dog Barkery; gift certificates from Island Breeze Tanning Salon, George's Barbershop, Gracefully Framed gift shop, & Joseph's Styling Salon; two autographed books; an engraved pen from Winner's Choice Awards; a gift card for The Red Hills Tavern; and a gift certificate towards a stay at the Twin Turrets Bed and Breakfast.

Congratulations to all our winners! Keep reading everyone!
Reading is always rewarding!
