“Make A Splash! Read!” was the theme for the Summer Reading Club at Library of the Chathams this year. The program ran from June 28 to August 19 and was open to all children living or attending school in the Chathams. Children’s Librarian Laura Weinbrom announced at the picnic that 121 student volunteers, with backup from the library staff, listened to book reports made by participating children. Children who read and reported on enough books were invited to the Kiwanis picnic. Weinbrom said that 549 children read and reported on 8004 books. Volunteers who listened to reports contributed 1171 hours with 22 volunteers giving over 20 hours.
