Our “Libraries Rock!” Summer Reading Programs are now over for 2018!
Adults & Young Adults who turned in their reading logs reaped some musically SWEET rewards. 🙂
Participants read at least five books over the summer & were asked to share a 7-word-summary or favorite quote from each title. Here are just some of the summaries & quotes participants submitted that may inspire you to read the books they read!
- Extreme poverty, starvation, homelessness, hard work, survival… The Glass Castle by Jeannette Wells
- “We cannot change what happened anymore. The only thing we can do is to learn from the past and to realize what discrimination and persecution of innocent people means. I believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to fight prejudice.” – Otto Frank pg. 111 of Anne Frank- Hidden Hope by Rita Thievon Mullin
- Mother, reminder, goodness, butterflies, courage, hope, love… Box of Butterflies by Roma Downey
- 21 great ways to stop procrastinating now! Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy
- “Time remains a mystery to Margaret. A game of Monopoly can consume an afternoon, and an hour on the treadmill seems like forever. But a lifetime passes in an instant.” pg. 397 Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand
- “I’m angry at last. I have someone to protect.” pg. 208 The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
- Full of conflict, romance, and complex relationships… Sandcastles by Luanne Rice
- Darth Vader, Governor Tarkin: bad. Luke: good. Star Wars by George Lucas 🙂
