Spring Into Reading Winners

From March to May, the library offered a reading program for all ages.  Readers kept track of their reading on a bookmark. Each bookmark they returned to the library was entered into a drawing for a gift certificate from an East Palestine business courtesy of the Friends of the Library.  The following participants won a gift certificate: Marc R. (Adult winner), Isabelle R. (Tweens & Teens winner), and Joe C. (Children winner).  Thanks to everyone who participated in the program.
