Library unveils Summer Reading trophy winners
The Newberg Public Library announced last week that Edwards Elementary and C.S. Lewis Academy repeated as winners of its Summer Reading Contest. The library awarded trophies last week to schools with the highest percentage of students reading three weeks or more during the summer. Edwards Elementary won the large school honor and C.S. Lewis Academy was tops among small schools.
"A school reading trophy fosters collaborative competition and engages schools with the library," said Korie Buerkle, children's librarian at Newberg Public Library.
Overall, the library registered more than 1,500 kids for the summer reading program this year. Participating children read 24,591 days in all and completed hundreds of literacy activities.
