Summer Reading Winners!

We had awesome participation in our Summer Reading Program at the new Woodridge Library, our first one since opening our beautiful new building last fall. Although hundreds of children completed the program and earned tickets to see the Washington Nationals, free books, and Chipotle meals, two lucky winners were the recipients of our special raffle prizes- a Kindle Fire and a set of Duplo blocks. Congrats to Eloise and Ethan for being such great readers this summer, and to all those who met their goals and had fun with us!
