What a summer here at the Westerly Library Teen Space!  This was my first summer at the Westerly Library, and the first big teen summer program here in recent years, so I was a little nervous about how the summer would go.  Of course, the summer turned out great and we had a lot of fun.  I want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated by attending programs, reading books and volunteering. 

The official reading stats are quite impressive.  We had 70 teens read 326 books this summer!  That's a lot of books!  Here are a few highlights:

Most read: Flora and Ulysses, by Kate DiCamillo - 8 readers, average score 4.5
