Fay Keech, Carrie Keech, Nicholas Wittmeyer and Paiden Wittmeyer, patrons of the Mary E. Seymour Memorial Stockton Library, recently received a prize awarded to all teenagers and children who sign up and complete the Mary E. Seymour Stockton and Cassadaga Branch Book-Stamp Challenge. This program was started over a year ago by Catherine Heath, library director, in an ongoing effort to promote teen and children patronage, library usage and literacy.
To date there are over 70 teens and children presently enrolled in the reading challenge. Some teen patrons have completed the challenge more than once.
The challenge is open to all teenagers and children who register for a Mary E. Seymour Memorial Free Library card. For more information regarding the challenge inquire at the library during the hours of operation: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday 4 to 8 p.m., call 595-3323, or send email to email@example.com.
