STPL Summer Wrap Up

Top Readers

Summer 2019 is all done, and we must say it was a great one here at STPL! As we head into crisp fall weather let’s have a look back at everything we got up to over the last few months.

Summer Reading Club

Members of Summer Reading Club logged their reading all summer in their special SRC Passports. Staff checked passports throughout the summer and kept track of everyone’s totals. We’re proud to say our readers smashed last year’s reading record! Here are the numbers from 2019:

  • 7710 Books Read
  • 501 Kids Registered for SRC
  • 761 Passport Checks done by Staff

In addition to all the summer reading, we had so many fun programs this summer! Here are a few of the highlights:

 

#STPLSUMMERSNAPS: Summer Photo Challenge

This year we wanted to throw a challenge out there for adults, because why should kids have all the summer fun? We held an online photo challenge called #stplsummersnaps and invited people to share photos on our social media that fit within ten different themes: Celebration Selfie, Local History, Books and “Brews”, Local Eats, Library Books on the Go, Active in Elgin, Summer Sounds, Garden Pride, Eco Warrior, and Summer Moments.

The results of the challenge were 112 photos! Each photo was counted as an entry into a grand prize draw. Right now you can see some of our favourite photos from the summer on our Art Wall on the Main Level. Here are a few of the entries, drop in and take a stroll past the Art Wall to see more!

 

Thanks for making summer 2019 so amazing everyone!
