Paynesville Branch Customers Win Nook EReaders In 2011 Winter Reading Program
Hailey Bundy (picture left) and Leone Herding (picture right) each won a Nook™ eReader Grand Prize in this year's Great River Regional Library Winter Reading Program (WRP), Leone's eReader was donated by the Friends of the Paynesville Public Library, which was a prize for which only Paynesville Library participants were eligible. Hailey won one of the Nooks for which all Great River Regional Library participants were eligible. Both women were thrilled; Hailey had already decided which accessories she'd buy for her Nook™ before she even picked up her prize, and Leone plans to give hers as an Easter gift to one of her children. A total of 117 Paynesville library customers participated in this year's WRP, for which they read a cumulative 810 books in the snowy months of January and February.
