Food and fun at season finale

The Page Public Library concluded its annual Adult Summer Reading Program on Monday night by hosting a cookout and raffle. With a theme of “Build a Better World” this year, 53 participants completed the program by reading at least 15 books in a nine week span of time. More than 1,600 books were completed among the group, with Page resident Joy Norton receiving the title of most prolific reader at 113 books read this summer. Participants were not only treated to hot dogs and hamburgers, but were the recipients of roughly $7,000 worth of prizes and services donated by dozens of local businesses and artisans. Page Community Services Director Debbie Winlock and summer reading program participant Tony Brown cook up hot dogs and hamburgers for the event.
