Summer Reading Program
One hundred and ninety-three students from kindergarten through sixth grade participated in and successfully completed the 2014 Summer Reading Program through the James V. Brown Library. In recognition of their achievement, the WASD Education Foundation provided $2,000 to the district to purchase library books in their honor, complete with dedication bookplates in their honor. The books will be donated to the students' respective school libraries.
The following is a list of district schools and their corresponding number of successful summer readers: Cochran, 36; Hepburn-Lycoming, 31; Stevens, 25; Curtin, 41; and Lycoming Valley, 28.
Since 2011, the WASDEF has committed $14,000 to the Summer Reading Program in an effort to add to the collection of new books in district libraries.
