The children who read the most books during the annual Summer Reading Program at the Franklin County Library were recognized with prizes and certificates at the Closing Ceremonies and Fun Day on Tuesday, July 22 behind the library.
As an incentive for children to read more books, Summer Reading Program Coordinator August Whitaker agreed to die her hair pink, green, or blue. Participants voted by completing reading logs with their desired color. Blue won, and Mrs. Whitaker dyed her hair blue for the splash party. For a listing of winners, see the July 24 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
