500 participants were the goal for the Warner Library for the 2022 edition of the summer reading club and organizers say they blew that number out of the water.
On the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, Librarian Corey Campbell told Regional Radio they totaled nearly 650 participants between the kids' program and the adult program.
The Summer Reading Club offered a full summer of activities and prizes for submitting reading logs as the last few summers had been slowed by COVID concerns.
With the summer reading club wrapped up, organizers are hoping to hear from participants about what can improve the program. Campbell explains they did a similar survey last year and used the feedback to improve the program this year.
Campbell points out the breakdown for kids and adults is around a 50/50 split. He credits the staff of the library for engaging the patrons and making them aware of the program and how fun it can be for all ages.
