Over the past two months, over 1400 “Get a Clue” participants logged thousands upon thousands of hours of reading time. With invaluable help from our Kid Power volunteers, another Summer Reading Game was a resounding success.

As a way of thanking our Kid Power Volunteers for the fantastic job they did over the summer, we held a party to celebrate their efforts.  They ate pizza, hung out with friends, played carnival-style games, and won prizes, all of which were donated by library patrons, staff members, and community businesses. 

Pyzano’s Pizzeria graciously gave us a great deal on the pizza that was a treat from the Friends of the Library.  Also, through a joint effort, the Friends secured gift certificates from Knudson’s Creamery at a special price, so that each Kid Power volunteer could have an ice cream sundae. A good time was had by all, and our mascot, Ike, found a new home with one of our Reading Buddies!

In closing, a BIG thank you to everyone who played, volunteered, donated, and contributed to make this the most successful Summer Reading Game ever at Castro Valley.
