Summer Reading Program Results & Thanks!

The Chambers County Library System congratulates the 715 children who enrolled in the 2006 Texas Reading Club. This year, 8,523 books were read by the children at the Anahuac, Winnie, and Mont Belvieu libraries. Participants of the program, designed for children from pre-school through 5th grades, attended events with a sports theme, tying in with the Texas State Library theme this year of “Reading, the Sport of Champions.” Children who reached the goal by reading 12 books in the 6 week program period were awarded certificates of completion, and parties were held at each branch to celebrate their achievements. Sponsors of the parties included the Barbers Hill Bank and Sam Karim of Valero in Mont Belvieu, Security State Bank and Sunrise Grocery in Anahuac, and the Winnie-Stowell Noon Optimist Club, Family Dollar, Finch & Company, and Creative Selections in Winnie. Reading incentives during the summer were provided by Dairy Queen, and Sonic Drive-In of Winnie, Texas Brine Company of Mont Belvieu, McDonald’s of Mont Belvieu and Hankamer, Station KWBB of Beaumont, and the Friends of the Chambers County Library System.

Adults and teens participated in their own reading clubs: for every 4 books read, a library patron submitted a ticket for a drawing. This year’s prizes included dinner gift cards, movie ticket cards, a book bag or cd case, and tickets to area attractions. The Friends of the Chambers County Library System underwrote the prizes in conjunction with Station
KWBB in Beaumont. Winners of the “Dinner and a Movie” raffles are: Wilma Quin and Maritza Hernandez at the Chambers County Library, Anahuac; William Skinner and Bonnie Marberry at the Juanita Hargraves Memorial Branch, Winnie; and Denesse Malone and Juanita Beauxis at the West Chambers Branch, Mont Belvieu.

Thank you for all this information. I absolutely loved the video on the other blog. I am new to the area and checking out the library. I have 2 teenage girls and looks like they will have some great things to do at the library. Thank you again.
I'd like to make you aware of my latest children's book,"GEtting to Know Ruben Plotnick" (ages 5-9), which won the NY Library Association's Best Children's Book of the 2006 Winter Season Award. The book is featured in the Fall 2006 issue of Teaching Tolerance, as a springboard for discussing differences, and teaching respect and tolerance. Thanks for your time. Roz Rosenbluth
