Rachel Prejean earns 2018 Silver Award


We know that when school is out, kids check out! But Rachel’s Silver Award project helps bring the excitement of reading to kids throughout the summer at the Hollis Town Library.

Rachel organized a Summer Reading Program, which includes games and prizes, helping to get people to come check out the library, a valuable resource in the town. She also put together advertisements on social media, promoting the town library. She even created a Book Drive to help supply the library with books, both for supplies and giveaways to kids. The Book Drive was so successful, the library will be continuing it all year!

The heart of Rachel’s project really is to ensure that members of her community continue to visit the town’s library, because, as she says, “It’s a gathering place – a living room for the community.”
