We Have a Winner at the Barbara Bush Library!

Lynn Jones, shown here with her daughter Zoe, is the winner of a $30 Amazon gift card as a prize drawing from those who completed the Adult Summer Reading Program. Her name was drawn at random from among all participants at Barbara Bush Library who read at least 5 books or 600 minutes during the summer. When Lynn was told she won, she was surprised yet extremely excited. Lynn is an avid reader and has passed on her love of books to her kids. The summer  reading program gives her a chance to share her likes with others as well as see what others are reading.
