We celebrated the summation of a spectacular summer filled with reading by inviting Jungle Terry and his traveling zoo to our Read House.

More than 300 kids and adults came to our Summer Reading Finale Party and met, touched, and learned about the mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians in Jungle Terry’s entourage.

You all had a busy summer! Nearly 1,500 kids signed up for our Summer Reading program and read more than 18,000 hours.

Meanwhile, more than 700 teens and adults joined us for Summer Reading and read more than 4,000 books.
