Summer Reading Recap (or Why Haverhill Teens Rule)
School is back in session and summer reading is finally over! And what a summer it was! Haverhill teens read a total of 473 books for the library this summer and posted 250 individual book reviews. The sheer quantity of books read, alone, is pretty awesome but the even more amazing part is Haverhill teens, with the very generous donations from the Friends of Haverhill Public Library, will be responsible for sending $500 to the Haverhill Gazette Santa Fund.
The Library Friends group pledged to donate a dollar for every book read and every review written up to $500. In past years, we’ve gotten awful close to making the full donation but the teens that participated in the 2012 Summer Reading Program are the first group ever to hit the limit!
So, if you needed another reason that definitively shows how awesome Haverhill teens are, there you go! Thanks guys!
