Posted by Barbara Raab on Thu, 08/30/2012 - 4:17pm

It was a wonderful summer in the Children’s Room.   Hundreds of people came to the library to see puppet shows, magic shows, animal shows, to tie dye and make ice cream,  to attend storytimes, gaming events, movies and book groups. 

Wilmington kids also did a lot of reading this summer!  A total of 2,110 books were logged online and in the library. 

Stars Guessing Contest Winners

The actual number of stars in the jar was 639.  There was a 4 way tie for the closest guess.  The winners were:

Kate Calvoni

Cal DiPesa

Joseph Dynan

Alyssa Fricia

 Each won a Barnes & Noble gift certificate, and ¼ of the stars.

 Grand Prize Winner

The winner of a Nook Color was Patrick Xavier. 


In order to improve our Summer Reading program next year, the Children's Department is conducting a Summer Reading 2012 Evaluation Survey.   There are 2 versions of the survey: one for parents and one for kids.   Please fill out the survey to give feedback on the online review process, the grand prize, the programs and other aspects of the Summer Reading Program.
