Library announces grand prize winners

More than 1,500 library patrons participated in the Racine Public Library's 2008 Summer Reading Challenge. The annual reading contest challenged participants to read the selected number of books for their age group, and to visit the library ten times over the summer. School age children were also challenged to complete a family activity bingo game during the contest.

Those who completed their challenges received a small gift courtesy of the Library and coupons from Pizza Hut, State Park passes from the Wisconsin DNR, and free admission tickets from the Renaissance Faire. Participants also had their names entered in a drawing for a Wii Game System and other prizes donated by Barnes and Noble of Racine.

The 2008 Grand Prize winners were:
Amanda Van Swol – winner of the Wii
Barb Chernouski, Laura Cardenas and Miranda Fair – winners of Barnes and Noble gifts.
The 2009 reading challenge, "Be Creative @ Your Library" and "Express Yourself @ Your Library" will begin on June 15, 2009.
