Petersburg youth read their way to the stars

Over a hundred Petersburg youth read their way, star by star, through the universe this summer. The annual Petersburg library reading competition offered up prizes and an ice cream sundae party for kids up to 5th grade who completed the two month space-themed reading program.

For each half hour of reading, the participant earned an additional star. They all started at the sun and worked their way through the planets. Alexis Kenyon attended the program’s end of summer raffle to see how the hours of reading paid off.
