25 Stories of Impact: Story #13

Pittsylvania County Public Library, 2020 CFDRR Summer Reading Program Grant Recipient

According to PCPL: To promote summer reading, Pittsylvania County Public Library worked with the Pittsylvania County Public Schools to provide summer reading information packets with the weekly food distribution efforts.  During the 2020 Summer Reading Program, 165 adults and 182 children participated.  This is lower than a typical year, but still an achievement during the early stages of a pandemic.  Although many children were disappointed by a lack of in-person summer reading programs, they enjoyed getting personal attention from library staff while they were selecting their books to read at home.  One young girl proudly offered her library card at the checkout desk and grandly offered to pay for her whole family’s books with her library “credit card.”
