Summer Reading Program 2017

Young patrons of Hayner Public Library had a wonderful time at this year’s Summer Reading Program, “Read by Design.” The KidsSpace staff kept them busy with craft times, performers, movies, puppet shows, and stories.

The program drew in more than 300 kids over six weeks. Each participant was rewarded each week with a prize and a raffle ticket for one of our three grand prizes. At the end of the program, participants were treated to a party held at the Alton High School Commons where they were entertained by ‘Mazing Matthias from Circus Kaput. Each participant also received a free book, snacks, and a certificate
for all their hard work. 

At the End-of-the-Summer-Reading Party, a ticket was drawn for each of the three grand prizes. The winner of the painting party with Jennifer Grassle from Cheerful Canvas was Addie Turner. The winner of the Wow Wee Robosapiens Robot was Parker Lewis. The winner of the Laser Peg Legos was Louis Franklin. Tickets were also drawn for art work created by Jennifer Grassle from Cheerful Canvas. Winners for the artwork include Josiah B., Claire C., Oliver P., and Abbie W. We hope to see everyone again next year at our 2018 Summer Reading Program, “Reading Takes You Everywhere.” Congratulations to all our winners!

We would also like to thank our sponsors: Alton High School, Dollar General, Community Center, St. Louis Cardinals, Cheerful Canvas, and Gateway Grizzles.
