TSRC is Over :'(

Hopefully everybody had an AWESOME SUMMER this year and enjoyed some good books at the cottage, beach, park, or anywhere else you like to read in the summer. We had an amazing turn out for the program and the numbers are in. The teens of Wellington County (that’s you) read over 633,000 pages! Thats six hundred and thirty-three THOUSAND pages! AMAZING!

With such great reading going on, we’d like to know what kind of prizes you’d like to win next year. So be sure to take our poll below and if you have any other ideas on how to make the TSRC better next year let us know with a comment.
