Duncanville Public Library Announces Summer Reading Club Grand Prize Winners

Duncanville, TX - Duncanville Public Library Summer Reading Club participants Aliyah Jones, Jacqueline Solis, Jaedon Wilhite, and Abigail Sanchez are the grand prize winners of Kindle Fire tablets, courtesy of The Friends of the Duncanville Public Library.

All the winners, Aliyah, 6, Jacqueline, 9, Jaedon, 14, and Abigail, 15, reside in Duncanville. Kids and teens who completed the 20-hour reading log were entered in the grand prize drawing. The four win- ners were randomly selected out of 702 kids and teens who completed reading logs this summer.

A Universe of Stories was this year’s Summer Reading Club theme, and the library offered 75 free programs. Each year, the Duncanville Public Library hosts the summer reading club to provide incen- tives to encourage kids and teens to read over the summer. Studies show participation in summer reading programs enables children to maintain essential reading skills during their summer vacation. And, as a result, they are better prepared for the upcoming school year.
