Meet La Porte Branch's Adult Summer Reader Winner

Each branch in HCPL had a $30.00 gift card to award to one adult who completed the Adult Summer Reading Program. By random draw our winner was Becky Roderick. Ms. Roderick was pleased and surprised when I called her about her prize. She told me that her daughter has participated in the children's program and this year she decided to sign up for the adult program. It certainly paid off for Becky not only in a summer of good reading but a gift card to boot. Congratulations!
