Summer Reading Program 2017 - City Council Awards Night
On September 25th, the Livermore City Council warmly congratulated Livermore’s “Super Readers” who finished the Livermore Public Library’s 2017 Summer Reading Program, “Reading by Design.” This year, 909 children earned “Super Reader” status and were rewarded with a free book, a medal, and an invitation to attend this special City Council event.
The evening began with the children checking in to get their name badges at the Civic Center Library, where they were also invited to sign up for a gift certificate drawing sponsored by the Friends of the Livermore Library. Library staff and volunteers then assisted parents and children in lining up and proceeding through the Civic Center complex to the Council Chambers. Mayor Marchand and the City Council Members shook each child’s hand after Library Director Tamera LeBeau read the child’s name aloud. Proud parents and friends watched their children, taking photos as the children met the Mayor and City Council. A recording of this special Livermore City Council Meeting will be available to be viewed online at http://www.tri-valleytv.org/VOD.html.
This event was made possible through the generous support of volunteers, including members of the Friends of the Livermore Library. Plans are already under way for Livermore Public Library’s 2018 Summer Reading Program. For any questions, please contact the Livermore Public Library at (925) 373-5504.
