Run for Reading - A Success!

Our first ever Run for Reading Earth Day 5K was a huge success!   Perfect weather and great trail conditions awaited our full roster of 200 runners and walkers, and the race earned more than $6300 to support new library programs, including guest speakers and authors, technology classes, and summer reading programs for all ages! What a great way to wrap up National Library Week!
