A huge "thank you" to our community of helpers

As we get ready to send our children back to school, the Summer Reading Program at the Collinsville Library draws to an end, and Miss Alison and all of the staff of the Children's Library would like to gratefully thank our community sponsors for helping us this year with donations of excellent prizes for our readers this summer.  As it takes a village to raise a child, it takes the city of Collinsville and our friends in the St. Louis Metro area to get on board with the Library to keep our kids reading all summer to stay ahead in school and grow to become the future leaders of our city.  We are so thankful to the following businesses and organizations for their support:

AAA Swing City Music
Collinsville Area Recreation District
The Friends of the Collinsville Library
Illinois State Library - Penny Severns Grant
Saint Louis Cardinals
Saint Louis Science Center
University of Illinois Extension Services
Turning Pointe Dance Academy

Enjoy the photos of some of our winners with their prizes.  If you would like to assist the Library with program sponsorship, please get in touch with Miss Alison by calling (618) 344 1112 or through email alisond(at)mvlibdist(dot)org
