Children’s SRP Letter

Letters to Editor

To the editor:

On behalf of the Fannin County Public Library, I would like to express sincere thanks and gratitude to the patrons, volunteers, organizations, performers, and community supporters who helped make our annual summer reading program so successful this year.  

This year, we had 158 kids, 34 teens, and 31 adults participate in our reading program.  We challenge our younger participants to read at least twenty books in the summer, and this year, the children logged over 2,500 books!  The summer reading program ran for a total of seven weeks, and during that time, we held 21 free, family-oriented programs that were attended by over 1,000 people.  

And none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our volunteers and the generosity of organizations in the community.  In particular, we would like to thank the Fannin County Friends of the Library for volunteering at some of our events and providing the funds to hire professional entertainers.  Many thanks also to the First Baptist Church of Blue Ridge for letting us use their Youth and Activity Center for some of our larger events.  Thank you to Tina Rice of Tina’s Tie-Dye and Dawn Davis for volunteering their time to lead programs at the library.  Thank you to Pizza Hut of Blue Ridge for donating some reading rewards for the children to completed our reading challenge. And, thank you to the Fannin County Fire Department for helping us host our end-of-summer Family Fun Night. We so appreciate your donation of time and resources to make that event possible.  To all of our other volunteers, who gave of their time this summer to help us host the summer reading program, we appreciate you more than we can say.  

And finally, we are tremendously grateful to our patrons for registering their children, teens, or themselves for our program.  Thank you for bringing your kids to our events, encouraging them to love reading, volunteering at a moment’s notice, and generally supporting your local library.  We create these programs for you and your children, and we love to see people enjoying them.  If you’re curious about upcoming events at the Fannin County Public LIbrary, please visit our website at www.mountainregionallibrary.org or follow us on Facebook for updates.  

See you at the library!
