Adult Summer Reading Program Winner!

Lara Zuckerman, a lifelong reader, is the Kingwood Branch Library 2012 Summer Adult Reading Program (ASRP) winner of the Amazon.com gift card!

Ms. Zuckerman said that her mother introduced her to reading as a young child and that she would sit under the table and read. As an adult, she fought the idea of e-books, but now reads only with her Nook.  Ms. Zuckerman added that she has her Nook app on her phone and now is never without a book to read. 

One of her friends told her about the Harris County ASRP and so she signed up.  She told her other friends and they signed up. 

Now she is able to tell them that she is the ASRP 2012 Kingwood Library winner!
