Summer Reading Program at Abbeville Memorial Library 2018
Every year during the Summer months libraries all over the United States take part in the Summer Reading Program. We here at Abbeville Memorial Library put on programs at the local Boys & Girls Club, and hold weekly presentations with different presenters who entertain the children with magical tricks, ventriloquism, wild animal shows, musical shows, science shows, etc. We also hold Movie Days and Craft Days during June and July here at the library. Even though the presentations are a significant part of the program reading is the central theme. Children aged five to eight and nine to twelve read books and are awarded points for each book read. The top 3 readers in each age group receive prizes and this year we had an increase in participation. On Friday, August 17th we held a Pizza Party for the top readers.

This year we had a lot more children who turned in their Summer Reading Logs. Well, we have tallied up all the points from the Summer Reading Logs and we have our winners. If you are a winner in your age group we have already been in contact with you. We will be asking you to stop by the library in the next few days for you to collect your prize and get your photograph taken. Congratulations to all our readers
