Thanks again to Jon David Waters for sharing with us. We also want to congratulate Laura Boreing! She is the most recent person to complete our "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" program. The goal of this program is to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she starts kindergarten. Laura comes from a family full of readers. In fact, now that she has completed the challenge, her little brother will be taking it on. If you would like to sign a child up for the program, visit

Speaking of reading challenges, our annual summer reading program starts this week! For more information, visit We have a reading challenge for kids, teens and adults with the chance to earn prizes like a $100 Amazon gift card. To sign up, go to
