Friday Photo: And the winner is…

DSC00726Congratulations to the winner of our Ultimate Summer Reading Kit – Lucy, a fourth grade student! I hope that you love your prize!

This kit included more than 20 books, games, and toys, guaranteed to keep students happy and entertained over the summer! Popular fiction titles like Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck and The Land of Stories were included, as well as some great non-fiction titles and even some well-known picture books like Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons and Substitute Creature. This seriously drool-worthy basket got a big reaction from kids – and from their parents!

100% of proceeds from ticket sales were used to fund Bookfair Scholarships for Johnson Elementary School students. To find out more about Book Fair Scholarships and read some of the amazing application essays written by Johnson students, check back this afternoon.

Thanks to our incredible raffle ticket sales, we raised enough to fund SIXTY book fair scholarships for Johnson Elementary School Students! This means that every student completing a scholarship essay will have the opportunity to shop for a book using a Book Fair Scholarship. This would not have been possible without the support and generosity of the Johnson Community. Thank you, thank you, thank you – it is because of YOU that some of our hardest working students will have books to read and enjoy over the summer! Bravo!

Thank you to Scholastic and to Johnson Library Donors for donating the materials to make our Fiesta Raffle possible. Thank you to Johnson staff for volunteering your time and effort to make this Book Fair a success. And thank you to the Johnson Community for supporting the library!
