Two Norwood youth earn "License to Read" & win grand prizes

Michelle Staggs and Emily S. (Emily's last name was omitted from the list of winners.) were two of 31,392 kids and teens who participated in The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s summer reading program “ReadQuest 2007: License to Read.” The program was based on a spy theme that included student-produced podcasts accessible 24/7, a spy video that played on YouTube, and electronic messages that ran on the Fountain Square LED video board.

All 42 branches of The Public Library offered incentives for the program. After completing all four levels of the program, “spy agents” Michelle and Emily became eligible to be in the random drawings for the Norwood Library‘s two grand prizes. Michelle won the bicycle for the kid category, and Emily won a digital camera for the teen category. Congratulations to you both for completing the program and keeping your eyes on the prizes!
